Neighbour Weeks and Preparing for the 1st of May
TYS participates in the national Neighbour Weeks on 18.4. – 14.5.2017. The idea of the Neighbour Weeks is to encourage people to get to know their neighbours through various events:
- Door stickers for the Neighbour Weeks
From the tenant office you can get a sticker/stickers to be placed on the door of your apartment, by which you communicate your wish to get to know your neighbours. Don’t get surprised if you doorbell rings in the coming weeks and a new person likes to get to know you J
- Events arranged by tenant committees
Tenant committees also arrange various events, be sure to follow your own tenant committee’s information on coming events
- In the information of TYS various gatherings between neighbours are presented #naapuriviikot
In its communication TYS follows meetings between neighbours but you can yourself participate in the social media by using #naapuriviikot and marking @tysturku in the picture.
- Naapuribisset (Neighbour Beers) event on 26.4. @ Three Beers
The TYS Neighbour Weeks culminates in the Naapuribisset event on Wed 26.4. at 15-18 o’clock in the Trebar. The practical arrangement takes place this way: you invite your neighbour to the event and get a coupon from the TYS office beforehand (versus your ID and the name your neighbour invited) and you will get a drink coupon for free, to be used at the event in question. Please, note that there are only 300 coupons to be distributed to 300 first ones, and of course it is required that both ones are residents of TYS and of legal age. TYS overalls logos are also distributed at the event. Welcome
P.s. It’s worthwhile overhauling your bicycle for the 1st May at the bicycle maintenance point located in front of the TYS office.
