HELP US PUT CHESTER AND AREA ON THE MAP!
Did you know that Nova Scotia has a great APP, which is easy to use and very informative?
Let’s work together to promote events and add photo’s of our area so that those who are traveling to NS and do not know the area very well will want to come for a visit! This APP will also help inform us all the events, news and traveling information that me need to get around in this beautiful province. It is also a must have for all those Nova Scotian’s who live outside of NS and want to stay updated with current events and those who want to see beautiful photos of home.
