It is going to be Jazz As in Old St Johns on August 16th

Its Jazz As

The Brook Sanctuary are so close to meeting the goals set out right at the start of the project that they are getting into celebration mode. Part of the fundraising cycle for the winter is a jazzy wee music performance at Old St John's on Hardy Street. Part celebration, part fundraiser. A whole lot of fun!

The Bowater Motor Group are always keen to support the Brook Sanctuary whenever and wherever we can, so when this jazz concert idea was discussed the team at Bowater Honda immediately stuck up their hand.

What a great cross over, the brand new bold and colourful Honda Jazz has just been launched - a perfect fit for the Brook Sanctuary Jazz Concert, and so now we have the "It's Jazz As" Concert!

Just like the Honda Jazz, tickets are very cheap. Just $15 for adults and $10 for those children under 16. These tickets can be bought at either the Brook Sanctuary office in Morrison's Square, or at Bowater Honda in Achilles Ave.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page (click here) as well - we may just be able to swing a few giveaways!

Jazzercise is coming. Time to warm up!

Nick D'Evereux, Sales Manager from Bowater Honda in his Jazzercise getup - this is not the new official work uniform!


We are very excited about the new generation Honda Jazz we now have down at Bowater Honda. So excited we want to make a song and dance about it!

 

The new Honda Jazz is quite simply JAZZ AS!

It is also nimble, quick and quite the stunner.
When we first learnt about this nippy little urban get-around coming to our new dealership earlier in the year we came up with the concept to run a Jazzercise class whilst offering demo drives on a Saturday the weekend after we "officially" launched this great new model.

Jazzercise.

Easy they said.

So now we are here. The official launch for the Honda Jazz is Thursday 24th July. That in itself is going to be an awesome event.

We have organised the knowledgeable folks out at the ASB Aquatic and Fitness Centre to come along and run a class for us, right in the showroom. 

It is going to be heaps of fun, so pull out your old lycra, drink half a dozen energy drinks, and come down for a great morning on Saturday 26th July at Bowater Honda's new showroom at 82 Achilles Ave.
