Thank You Letter for Being a Good Neighbour
Until someone has a bad neighbour (s)he may not realise exactly how priceless a good neighbour can be. Good neighbours can make every day life easier and help out when something untoward does occur. Those who do have good neighbours should consider writing a nice thank you note to let them know that they are appreciated.
Content of a Thank You Letter for Being a Good NeighbourThank you letters for being a good neighbour are usually written for one of three reasons: out of total spontaneity, after a neighbour does something nice or around the holidays. Depending on when such a letter is written the contents may differ. Letters written spontaneously are usually more general than others and simply contain an explicit message of thanks for being a good neighbour. They may also contain details of a few examples of what makes that person a good neighbour. Letters written after a neighbour does something nice will of course contain details of what the neighbour did and why it was so nice of him or her to do that. Letters written around the holidays tend to again be more general in their thanks as well as contain holiday greetings or best wishes for the future. Since letters written around the holidays tend to become annual events, writers should try to come up with new messages, or at least new details to include, each year that they send such letters.
Format of a Thank You Letter for Being a Good NeighbourIf thank you letters for being a good neighbour are typed they can be mistaken for generic form letters and their impacts reduced.

Regardless of the medium, these messages should reflect a relatively close relationship between the writer and recipient and therefore should avoid formal business letter formatting.

More relaxed styles and formats are usually better options for thank you letters for being a good neighbour. Postal delivery or hand delivery are both acceptable for thank you letters for being a good neighbour.
