Annual ‘Best of the City’ survey available

News Bulletin’s special mag marks 10th year in 2011.

The News Bulletin is looking for help from our readers in celebrating a special anniversary.

We’re asking youto tell us what you think makes Nanaimo the greatest place to live.

We’re celebrating the best Nanaimo has to offer with the 10th annual Best of the City survey (published both in print and and online at http://contest.nanaimobulletin.com/best_of_the_city).

We’re asking readers to fill out a questionnaire about what they like and love and what they are passionate about.

Tell us where the best place is to meet for coffee, your favourite biking routes and hiking trails, the best shops and restaurants and best night-time entertainment spots.

Some of our survey questions gather general information, like interesting places to people-watch and spots to relax outdoors, while others ask about services offered by local businesses such as the best place to get a good hamburger or to shop for unusual items.

All your responses will be compiled and published in our annual special section to help you enjoy the ‘best Nanaimo’ summer ever.

For your help with the survey, your name goes into a draw for a grand prize worth more than $1,000 – including a $250 Woodgrove shopping spree, a private kayak tour for 10 people around Newcastle Island from Alberni Outpost, and a premium car for a weekend from Budget Car Rentals.

There are also many mini prizes up for grabs as thanks for taking part in our survey.

So sharpen your pencils (or your computer keyboards) and fill out our survey.

The survey deadline is Friday (May 6). Surveys can be dropped off or mailed to our offices at 777 Poplar St.
