Liverpudlians named the region's friendliest neighbours

LIVERPOOL might often get bad press in the papers, but the true nature of the City has been shown in a survey of 856 homeowners, conducted by Countryside, in February 2016. Following the recent survey, Liverpool homeowners have been dubbed the region's friendliest neighbours, as the survey by revealed that Liverpudlians are closer to their neighbours than any other North West City. The home builder set out to discover how well the region's homeowners really know their neighbours, with Liverpool coming out on top as the most likely to befriend people moving into their neighbourhood.  Of those surveyed, 22% of Liverpool respondents described their neighbours as close friends, compared to just 1% in the surrounding Cities, and almost ˝ have invited their neighbours into their homes for a drink. Liverpool residents are also quick to welcome newcomers into their neighbourhood, with ⅔ of all respondents claiming to know each of their next door neighbours by name. The City's homeowners also came out as the least likely to intentionally avoid their neighbours, within the region.  Peter Vella, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at Countryside, commented:- "We have a number of developments in Merseyside and it's our responsibility to not only provide housing, but to build communities. It's great to see that the City's residents are being recognised for their friendly nature. Getting to know the people who live around us will help to create a sense of belonging and contribute to a happier community, so even a quick hello will make a big difference."
