The Nelson Ark - Compassion in Action

Recognising the healing power of contact with animals, the Nelson Ark deliver educational, rehabilitative and integrative programmes to benefit older people and youth at risk & youth offenders.
The Nelson ARK rescues unwanted and abused dogs and pairs them with young people who are perhaps losing their way. This combination has proven to be truly transformative for the lives of both the young people and the rescued dogs and has repercussions throughout the entire community.

The Nelson ARK is a Charitable Trust founded in 2002 by Susan Murray-Rifici and Karen Howieson. The Trust Board currently consists of eight members comprising representatives from the fields of education, law, business, health, animal welfare and veterinary science, as well as the perspective of youth and older persons.


The Nelson ARK is located at Stonehurst Farm in Richmond, just ten minutes from the centre of town. You can learn more about them by visiting their website:

Steve Webster - Sales

2017 toy stevew01Steve Webster moved here with his wife Gail and then two teenage daughters from London in the UK at the end of 2012. He came to Nelson after a varied career culminating in working for the NHS (National Health Service) as Technical Projects Manager. He joined us bringing with him an excitement for discovering a new lifestyle, making new friends and growing business networks in a brand new town.

He is an old fashioned kind of guy, with a love of old fashioned customer service - pop down for a coffee or tea and have a chat to Steve, he will get you into your dream vehicle easier than you ever thought.
