What’s the Surf Coast Salute?

Links Property want to recognised those within our close-knit community that do good deeds for others, but rarely get recognised for their generosity.

It may be something small, it does’t matter. The smaller the better… because these people probably do lots of small things for heaps of people!

Perhaps that friend who you call on to pick up your kids from school for you when you are running late from work (sound familiar?).

Or the neighbour who always kindly mows your nature strip (before you get a chance to return the favour!). Or the other neighbour who always brings your bins in for you.

Do you have a friend who always drops over freshly baked food, to share the love?

It’s the little things we want people to know about because these actions shape the Surf Coast community. We want to encourage them to continue, because they put a smile on people’s faces.

If you think someone in the Surf Coast community deserves to be recognised – Links Property can help you do it by going to our Links Property Facebook page:( and nominating anyone you feel needs to be recognised. You can nominate as many people as you like.

Links will feature some of these wonderful community members during the nomination period (Friday 10th January 2014 – Saturday 25th January 2014) on the Links Property ‘Hello Neighbour’ blog, and on our Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn pages.

Whilst the people you’re going to nominate don’t do things for a prize or recognition, Links Property have rounded up some gifts from our supportive local businesses Moto God, Scorched Restaurant, Joco Cups and TUS coffee in Torquay, that will be randomly drawn from all the nominations to provide some community members with a reward for their good deeds.

We don’t think it’s right to judge a good deed, in our eyes everyone nominated is a winner – that’s why the gifts will be drawn randomly.

Links will also provide some gifts to those that went to the effort of highlighting the good deeds on our Facebook page.

For three people nominated that are selected as winners, we have the following prizes, allocated randomly, and not selected by the winners:

A. A 2-hour pillion ride along the Great Ocean Road on the Indian Chief –valued at $250 provided by Moto God, Torquay.
