Very original initiative!
Although I'm not that sure about the 'who is perfect?' title they've chosen. What is then perfection for them?
Thanks for sharing, Maureen

Hi Ceri, yes I agree completely, there are so many different ways to connect with people and they all have their place. I am amazed that my 90 year old aunt is on facebook, it is a great way to connect with her.
Sometimes talking to neighbours when you have lived next door for ages and not spoken much can be one of the hardest things to do... but I think there are actually only a few people who really don't want to know. My son cut my neighbour's hedge yesterday for the first time and came home with a jar of homemade blackcurrant jam and 2 tins of sardines! and lent another neighbour a camping mat, once you get started things seem to grow. Good luck in your community

Love it Maureen and i think it's cool when online communities, such as this one can be used to help people 'get out more'.
It's always hard to meet people from cold, even your next door neighbour! However if a few people with similar interests and values start chatting online it can help build up a confidence to meet up face to face as it were, what do you think?

Sounds like a brilliant idea but unclear whether they are asking for volunteers or its set up already?
