Do you know your neighbours?

The song may say 'everybody needs good neighbours', but it appears many of us are just not, well, neighbourly anymore.

We carried out research which reveals a third of us don't even know our neighbours' names. While, of the 2,000 homeowners we asked, only a quarter would trust our neighbour with a spare key when we go away on holiday.

Being on good terms with your neighbours makes communities better places to live. Having neighbours you can rely on for help can lead to a sense of happiness and wellbeing. And looking out for your neighbours while they're away can lead to safer neighbourhoods. Take a look at our video with Jim Maddan from Neighbourhood Watch with our tips on how your neighbours can help keep your house secure during the summer holidays.

So our campaign to bring back the neighbourhood starts here!

If you don't think you're particularly close to your neighbours, take a look at our infographic to see where in the UK you'll find the 'perfect blend' of neighbourly love.

You can even select your region and the type of home you live in to see how your peer group responded to our questions.
