It is going to be a feast of the senses this winter driven by Jazz!

The Honda Jazz is a snazzy little number. It certainly gets a whole lot of attention, and is perfect when you want to make a splash.
When Cathy Madigan from Uniquely Nelson came by seeking support for this winters exciting new promotion to inject some fizz into the city centre we immediately thought that our Honda Jazz demonstrator would be perfect for her.  

Our "Attract Yellow" Honda Jazz has certainly made an impact in the past few month's that we have had it at Bowater Honda as our demonstrator vehicle. It is now enjoying a new lease on life as the promotional vehicle for the Uniquely Nelson "Feast of the Senses" winter campaign. 

This July prepare to tuck into some stunning winter fare - from a very sumptuious moving feast around some of the city's finest eateries, through to a journey around Nelson City streets where we can enjoy the creative illuminated collaborations between artists and retailers. Featuring illuminated art and installations, city retail windows take on a life of their own in the dark of winter! This sounds awesome and is just the tip of the iceberg with music events planned and a whole range of competitions to be involved in, as well as family and friend friendly Culinary Passports! 

Nelson City has more than 50 restaurants offering cuisines from every continent, seriously cool bars with boutique wines and craft beers and a café culture that takes coffee to a fine art! Add in a wide choice of arts, culture, music and entertainment and now you’ve got no excuse not to get out this winter and enjoy the best of Nelson City! Feast your senses with delicious tastes, colourful arts, beautiful music, and quality time with friends!

Bowater Honda are very excited to be a part of this winter festival and were proud to present Cathy Madigan from Uniquely Nelson the keys to the new Movable Feast Jazz Machine!

Bowater Honda have had a fantastic run since moving into the new showroom in Achilles Ave, in the heart of central Nelson. Sales have been booming, especially with the new generation Honda Jazz just flying out the door as fast as we can get test drives and trades done.

This unprecented scale of growth has meant that Bowater Honda are now looking for a Sales Support / Customer Services Sales Person to join our busy team in our modernised and centrally located Honda Franchise dealership.

The right person will be highly motivated with a strong emphasis on customer satisfaction.

Someone keen to get started in the motor industry, keen to learn new skills, and keen to fit in with an established long term team. They will also ideally be quite computer literate, super friendly and having a prior mechanical experience will be a definite advantage that will make life for all a whole lot easier.

The role is a Sales Support & Customer Services one across several different departments within the busy local Honda franchise. This means that there will be a lot to learn, but also a lot of diversity in your new job.

Honda is a long established brand, with a great reputation and an excellent product that continues to win awards in NZ as well as the rest of the world. The Bowater Motor Group have a long association with Honda New Zealand and we are proud to be flying the Honda flag. 

Bowater Honda's Nick is not above faking it according to one customer.

A thankyou card accidently came into the media department here at the Bowater Motor Group recently that was so sweet that we had to share it.

Bowater Honda's Sales Manager Nick D'Evereux eventually had the pleasure of receiving a lovely letter of thanks from recent customer Lynn and her husband once we had finished with it. 

The letter is artfully written and details a series of events that conspired to convince Lynn that the newly traded red Honda Jazz was indeed just right for her.

The Cancer Society Nelson gets all Jazzy on Daffodil Day

Sue Benseman, Linda Lucre (in car), Sophia Eagle and Sheryl Wearing (Bowater Honda) getting ready to set off with Daffodils in the Bowater Honda JAZZ AS daffodil yellow Honda Jazz this morning.

This morning Sheryl Wearing from Bowater Honda met up with Sue and Linda from Cancer Society Nelson on the Church Steps to lend them the daffodil yellow Honda Jazz demonstrator we have in our showroom to use for the day.

The Bowater Motor Group have a long history of supporting Cancer Society Nelson with our relationship being very strong over the past 2 years, including projects such as the BMG Mini for Nelson Cancer, the Relay for Life and sponsorship of the centre's primary vehicle. When the topic of Daffodil Day came up recently we asked what we could do to help. Hopefully the very noticable Daffodil Yellow 2014 Honda Jazz will draw attention to the volunteers as they travel the region collecting donations on this very important fund raising day for Cancer Society Nelson.

If you see Linda and her team out today in the Bowater Honda JAZZ AS Jazz make sure you donate! You can be given a bunch of daffodils for a $5 donation, or you can text 'daffodil' to 305 for an instant $3 donation!
