Alyssa is sky-high over Docklands

29 Mar 2011

Alyssa is sky-high over Docklands Image

 Alyssa Novitski is off to London in June after winning Destination Docklands’ recent “why I love Docklands” competition.

As the winner of the $13,000 first prize, the Ringwood receptionist will be taking her husband and two best friends.

Entrants had to submit in 50 words or less what they loved about Docklands. 

Alyssa, who is a regular visitor to Harbour Town Shopping Centre, had an idea for a tour of Docklands in a board game format highlighting our amazing activities, shops, restaurants and more.  She wrote:

“With shopping and food and fun galore

There’s so much to do you’ll come back for more

A game for all ages so drop all your plans

As we take you on a tour of our favourite Docklands!”

Destination Docklands’ executive officer Michelle Kemp reported that Alyssa could not believe it when phoned and told the news.

“She was so excited but could not make much noise because she works as a receptionist!” Ms Kemp said.  “She said her family had never won anything and she had never been overseas before.”

Second-prize winner Mario Chrisanthou submitted this fabulous rhyme outlining everything his family loves about Docklands:

“Our family likes variety, Docklands – place to be,

Easily accessible!  City Circle tram transports us FREE!

Kids visit Icehouse! Wonderland! Mini Golf too,

Mum adores outlets – many bargains to pursue!

When time to retire, family enjoys waterfront dining,

Abundance of food choices, prevents kids whining!!

100% satisfaction,

World-class attraction!”

Mario will get to stay in a two-bedroom, two-bathroom Grand Mercure Docklands apartment, enjoy a dinner for four at James Squire Brewhouse and take his family to Wonderland Fun Park.

Third prize of a dinner for four at James Squire Brewhouse and a family pass to Wonderland Fun Park went to Michael Ward.

Ms Kemp thanked everyone who took the time to enter.
