John and Tina Evangelista
John - So we moved in in April 2011 and the day we moved in and the movers in the house and had all the boxes all over the house (Tina: yes) we are surprised that the neighbours came and brought some food. They realized that we didn’t have time to cook, (Tina: yeah) to cook dinner so they came out with roast beef and ah, and some dessert.
Tina – That was the Stevenson’s as well
John – yeah… and ever since then we had a close relationship with our neighbours which [sic] in fact with the four neighbours round us. We would get together every month. We’d take turns.
Tina – to host the lunch
Tina and John – or dinner
John – It’s been going on for the past more than a year and, ah…
Tina – In fact the next one is tonight (laughs). We have dinner tonight at the neighbour’s house.
Tina and John – yeah
