The End Of Perfect Blend
Nov 07 2009

It's with sadness that we announce that Neighbours: The Perfect Blend will be coming to an end next year after seven years providing Neighbours news, information and interviews. We simply don't have the time to give it the attention it deserves, and have also seen a shift towards negativity from our readers and on the messageboard in the last few years that has gradually taken the fun away from what we were doing. But, for the most part, it has been fun, and we've all loved turning the website into one of the biggest and best Neighbours resources online.

We intend to finish things up on February 27th 2010, which will mark our 7th birthday. Before that date, we'd like to try and complete as many of the unfinished sections of the site as possible. This includes the few remaining biographies of regular characters, Magic Moments and some of the reference sections. If you have access to episodes, or a good knowledge of the show or particular characters, and would like to help, please get in touch through the Contact page.

Our messageboard, which today celebrates its 7th birthday, will remain, and the website will stay online as a resource for fans.

Finally, we'd just like to thank everyone who's read the site and supported us over the years. It really has been appreciated. And, once again, if you'd like to lend us a hand in our final months, please do get in touch.
