Life in a former village was centred in a specified area, in a homogeneous population that created a kind of a closed system. Changes among village population lead to the autonomisation of an individual from the group. Such phenomenon as neighbourhood help, working of, distrust towards strangers, emotional and sentimental value of farmland have disappeared or undergone changes.
Local cooperation that used to exist as neighbourhood help or voluntary activities, now has a form of an organizational structure. It is not a matter of combining labour of a group of people to get crops, but it is a matter of improving the local infrastructure or redeeming the cultural heritage of the region.
The article Local cooperation − neighbourhood help in the past and nowadays shows the tendency of changes in a present village. On the grounds of the research carried among village com-munity, aspects and facts of cultural life are shown. From a real cooperation of a group of people to imagery unity − this is the way, the look on a neighbourhood help may be abstracted.
