Steve Webster and his family moved to New Zealand from the UK in 2012, and they have settled straight away into Nelson and are loving the change of lifestyle. Steve had been working for the NHS (National Health Service) as Technical Projects Manager.
The move to Nelson had been a big one - Steve, his wife Gail and their two then teenage daughters left their lives and careers in London and headed here with a grand plan in mind. 20 years ago Steve and Gail travelled through Nelson on a "Gap Year" holiday, fell in love with the place and vowed to return one day.
Steve started his working life in the motor trade as an apprentice in the UK in an upholstery workshop, and worked his way to the point of owning his own Car Stereo and Sunroof Installation business. He has also been involved in quite a diverse range of other industries over a busy and very active life, but has always retained a love of cars, and motorsport in general - for a while there he even raced motorbikes!
Steve and his wife are both very keen divers. At one point Steve, a dive instructor as well, owned a Video Production Business in Queensland, Australia, making underwater videos of customers on the Great Barrier Reef and in the Coral Sea. The move to Nelson came with the added benefit that they could enjoy diving in this area now too, as well as particiate in other self confessed "adventure junkie" activities.
Steve's wife Gail owns Earthbloom Flowerstore, which Steve has helped set up once they settled into the area. Steve has also joined the Volunteer Fire Brigade and the Chamber of Commerce as they are keen to get amongst a new Nelson life. Their kids settled into a new school routine, finished their highschool years, and are now grown and embarking on their adult lives.
An old fashioned kind of guy at heart, with a love of old fashioned customer service, Steve is always available for a coffee or tea and a chat, he will get you into your dream vehicle easier than you ever thought.
