August's Good Neighbours

Posted on Friday, August 21, 2020 01:45 PM

Blake and Karen Martin | City Centre

The Martin's exemplify being good neighbours in too many ways to count. Blake always chats with the neighbourhood children and keeps watch over them, thanks both children and adults for wearing bike helmets as they pass by, and flags down cars speeding in the cul-de-sac and politely and respectfully asks them to slow down because children play here. He is always quick to lend tools and do what he can to help his neighbours.
