Other signs include inviting locals for a glass of wine, quickly fixing fences between gardens, and sharing locally grown fruits and vegetables.

But not everyone is so lucky, with the signs of a bad neighbor including throwing garbage in the yard, playing loud music, and not cleaning up after their pet.
The 2,000-person poll was commissioned by Barefoot Wine as part of its Neighbors to Knowbors campaign, which seeks out the most unique neighborhood in the country.
By celebrating their neighbors, Brits have the chance to win a mural dedicated to their community and the unique characters it contains, created by famous illustrator Alice Skinner.
A spokesperson for Barefoot Wine said, âIt’s literally lucky who we end up living with, so it’s great to see how many people feel positive about their neighbors and their community.
âEspecially over the past year, neighbors have often been the only people we have communicated face to face.
âSo many communities have gathered around a glass of wine with bare feet, whether over the fence or in the garden for a glass of wine.
âWe want to embrace the community spirit and encourage people to celebrate their neighborhood as part of the search for the most unique neighborhood in the country.
âThe study found people Britons would most like to live alongside doctors, chefs and actors, and even a wine connoisseur, so it will be wonderful to hear about the unique characters that make up the communities across the country. “
