Fielday Specials across the range, on and off the paddock

The Fielday Specials are always worth waiting for, and 2015 is no different, except this year it is all about the deals, NO JOKE!

One of the big differences though is that Fielday Specials are now spread across the range - including this great offer across the entire range of new vehicles: 3 years servicing, 3 years, AA Roadservice and 3 years warranty. 

As always with Fieldays there is something special for those looking to upgrade their commercial vehicle.

Popular hybrids hit record sales of 5 million

As Toyota announces that five million hybrid vehicles have been sold in 80 countries throughout the world, New Zealand motorists are also embracing the technology with record sales in this country.

Toyota says that in the last 11 months it has sold a record-breaking million hybrid vehicles globally, bringing the world total of hybrids sold to 5,125,600, including 50,000 in Australia and 5500 in New Zealand.

The five million-plus hybrids sold have saved about 12 billion litres of petrol and led to around 34 million fewer tons of CO2 being emitted compared with petrol-powered vehicles of similar size and driving performance.

Brook Sanctuary & Bowater Honda launch the fund raising drive to Get behind the Fence

The gathered supporters of the Brook Sanctuary
Over 150 supporters of the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary gathered at Bowater Honda listen to Brook Waimarama Sanctuary General Manager Hudson Dodd detailing the need for a pest proof fence.


Fundraising for the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary pest-proof fence got a big boost with the official launch of the public phase of the campaign at Bowater Honda on Friday night.

Over 150 invited guests were treated to an evening of information, celebration and motivation to take the initiative and "Get behind the Fence". The evening was also an opportunity to celebrate the new campaign office situated in the top showroom of Bowater Honda's central city dealership. This new central city location will hopefully make the new phase of fundraising a little easier, with a more visible location in the heart of Nelson city, and the chance for those passing by to wander in and see progress of the Sanctuary project and even meet a few of the sanctuary locals, like the 3 very handsome gecko's in the campaign office at the moment!

It was a great turnout and a very successful launch event, with invited guests able to mix and mingle for the first part of the evening and talk through the project with a strong contingent of Brook Sanctuary Waimarama Trust members, Sanctuary staff, local Tasman District and Nelson City Councillors, local MP and Minister of Conservation Hon Dr Nick Smith, and Tasman District Mayor Richard Kempthorne.
