The MGB Register was formed in the late 1970’s with the prime objectives being:
We are saddened to announce the death of Danny Waters after a long illness.
Danny had been a committee member for many years looking after all things Technical, a role he cherished. Sadly, he had to resign from the committee due to ill health, but always kept an interest in all things MG. Unfortunately, his condition worsened seeing him admitted into a nursing home just under 2 years ago.
He was without doubt one on the most knowledgeable people on the country for MGBs gaining his knowledge working as a mechanic at a BMC/Leyland Dealership during their production years. He took the lead on the Register’s Technical day for many years and must have answered hundreds if not thousands of technical queries over the years. He also had amazing knowledge of other MG types and was a respected concours Judge. He was always there to help people and we can recall him helping many visitors at MG Live with car problems.
Danny was well known in the club both in the UK and from overseas. We recall when he manned the register stand at MG Live, he was always in demand from friends from home and abroad. He attended many events over the years in his distinctive green LHD MGB and LHD MGF VVC, both were in concours condition and without doubt his pride and joy. The MGF was the Geneva Motor Show exhibit for its public debut. His other interests were Agricultural Machinery and Model Railways a hobby he enjoyed with his young grandson.
Being involved with the club for so long he had a wealth of knowledge and anecdotes from the past and was always being there to support and lend a hand if needed all of which gained him much respect being awarded the club’s Marque of Friendship award in 2019.
He was a quiet family man and a good friend to many people. He has been missed from the MG scene but has not been for gotten.
He will be much missed by all his friends.
Our deepest condolences go to his family.
We are saddened to announce the death of Roger Cooper after a short illness.
Roger had been President of the MGB Register since early 2021 which was felt a fitting honour as he had worked tirelessly for the good of the Register for many years. He was a member of the original Register committee when it was formed back in 1979 and held the position of Treasurer for many years. He was very much a working President, still very active on the committee and planning next year’s Spring Run.
Roger was well known in the club and with his wife Joan attended many events over the years in his distinctive citron MGB GT which he had owned for well over 40 years. Being involved with the club for so long he had a wealth of knowledge and was able to give good advice, which gained him much respect. He was a quiet man but had a good sense of humour and was always there to support and lend a hand if needed.
He will be much missed by all his friends in the Register. Our deepest condolences go to Joan and family.
A full obituary will be published in Safety fast and the Register eNewsletter.
