New study busts myth that neighbourly spirit in the North-West is dying
People's Postcode Lottery has found more than half of people in the North-West want to build real-life relationships with their neighbours.
The study of more than 2,000 renters and homeowners in the UK also shows that 54.3% of people in the North-West always make an effort to speak to their neighbours.
And while 44% are part of community social media groups, 77.7% interact more with people in their area in real life than online.
The research also discovered that 47% would knock and ask face-to-face to borrow household groceries (sugar, milk etc) and 73.5% would tell their neighbour when they are going on holiday.
