More than 10 years ago, one woman decided to start a monthly tradition to catch up with the ladies on her street.
Sadly Anne Wrigley passed away, but the "Sycamore Ladies" still host the afternoon teas to make sure they do not lose touch.
It all started when Shirley Durigo was going overseas for a few weeks, so Anne decided to host a small get-together to say bon voyage.
From there it grew as each resident would take turns hosting the afternoon tea once a month said Ms Durigo.
"Anne liked the old-fashioned approach where she would ring everyone to invite them, but a lot of us were working so we would find an invitation in the mailbox," she said.
"Some people have moved away, and we have had new people move in who are welcome.
"We also live on acres and work so it's hard to see each other, this way we can catch up and have a chinwag."
Ms Durigo said the tradition is not something one would hear of often, but it was a great way to build friendships.
"I would have known a couple of the ladies, but now I know more, and they are great friends," she said.
Annette tenBroeke and her mother moved into the street after Anne had passed away, but they could not be more grateful for the tradition she started.
"It has been fantastic to get to know the ladies," she said.
"With my mum, I go away a lot for work, I know I can ring any one of them, and they have all raced down here at different times when my mum has been in trouble.
"It has been a wonderful thing to have that neighbourhood friendship and support."
Ms tenBroeke's mother cracked her ribs and has been unable to cook for the Riverina Iris Farm open days.
So the Sycamore Ladies stepped up and have been baking for the past few weeks which can be purchased for a small donation toward the Buy a Bale drought relief program.
