ONLY 25% OF PEOPLE IN CARDIFF KNOW THEIR NEIGHBOUR’S NAME REVEALS WEBER® SURVEY
At a time when politicians have pledged to strengthen local communities, it seems our new government may have a tough job on their hands as less than 5% of British people profess to know their neighbours names reveals a survey by Weber®; the world’s favourite barbecue brand.
The survey of over 2,000 UK residents by Weber® reveals the scale of our anti-social behaviour as one in five admitted to actively going out of their way to avoid their neighbours. The ‘fairer sex’ also came across the meanest as men were twice as likely to reach out to their neighbours than women.
All hope is not however lost, as almost three-quarters of Brits believe it’s important to know their neighbours and over half of the nation would like to make an effort to get to know them better. Younger generations are also more likely to welcome a new neighbour than the over 55yrs age group.
With National Barbecue Week 25th – 31st May kick-starting the barbecue season, there’s no better time to come out of hibernation, get out into our gardens and enjoy good food and good company. Weber® and Tom and Henry Herbert of TV’s The Fabulous Baker Brothers: A Bite of Britain have joined forces to encourage the UK to reach out to our neighbours and get together this summer with their Come on Over campaign.
