This winter the team at Bowater Honda are one of the driving forces behind the exciting winter promotion "Feast for the Senses" - happening all over Nelson city during the frosty month of July. We have come onboard with festival organisers Uniquely Nelson, in support of this great mid winter's collection of great activities from Movable Feasts through to Deep in the Bleak - a series of awesome musical concerts happening at Old St John's in Hardy Street. 

Up for grabs with the Jazzy Selfie Competition is a Feast for the Senses Nelson City Experience - it is the chance to have a full on awesome weekend of completeness courtesy of Uniquely Nelson, Bowater Honda and a bunch of great Nelson retailers. This is a fully awesome prize and it is soooo easy to enter! 

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 are growing fast, and are looking for a new team member

Written by Media Manager.

The chance has presented itself to join the team at Bowater Honda.

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. A self starter that is a real people person that enjoys the satisfaction of exceeding the expectations of those that they meet. The kind of person that lights up a room, or is everyone's mate. 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.

Barry shows us how to nail a great fuel rating in his new Honda Jazz

Barry Staples 

Barry Staples has a trick or two up his sleeve it would seem.

This clever hyper-miler has been getting some quite remarkable fuel efficiency figures from his new, bright yellow, 2014 Honda Jazz.

On paper this 1.3L automatic compact car is said to be able to achieve 5.2L/100km of fuel consumption within mixed driving parameters - meaning mixed driving between city and the open road.

Barry has got the proof to say much much better is possible!

He lives a little bit out of town and does the perfect mix of open road and city driving, and still manages to achieve a quite respectable 3.9L/100km, and here is the proof!
