Norwich has been named as the second most friendly city in the country in a survey conducted by the Co-op.
It came second to Sheffield but beat the likes of Nottingham, Edinburgh and Birmingham.
But the study revealed that across the country one in four people over the age of 45 do not have a neighbour they can call on for help.
It was a similar story for younger people, with one in six under 35-year-olds admitting they do not have any neighbourly support.
The survey of 2,000 adults also found that a parcel delivery is now the main reason someone calls on the person living next door to ask a favour.
