Paul Hollingworth

Some of you will already be aware of the shocking news that our friend & Centre committee colleague Paul Hollingworth passed away suddenly on the morning of Sunday, 17th March following a heart attack. Paul was Secretary to the MGCC Midland Centre committee, and heavily involved with the Centre’s Welsh Rallye, together with being joint Natter leader with the North Worcestershire MGCC.

As a result, the Midland Centre AGM, due to take place on Monday 18th March, has been postponed to a future date.

Further information relating to Paul will be circulated as and when available. In the meantime, if any of you have Paul’s email address in your computer address books, please delete it immediately to avoid any mails being sent to his home.

Thank you.

JOIN US FOR A REALLY UNIQUE CELEBRATION ON   14 MAY 2024

MIDLANDS SECTION OF THE EVENT - MEET AT LONGBRIDGE ‘Q’ GATE AT 10.00AM FOLLOWED BY A RUN TO GAYDON.

The 100th Year MG Anniversary John O`Groats to Lands End MG Cavalcade

This exciting event will be passing through our Midland Centre Area as part of a great celebratory drive as all sections of our club stage the final part of MG`s Centenary celebrations. It will feature the receipt of a baton depicting a life sized effigy of the founder of the marque, Cecil Kimber, which will visit sites of interest that have played a part in the creation of the world famous Octagon. And our site of interest is of course Longbridge.

So this is an invitation to take part, because from Longbridge to the British Museum at Gaydon and after a photo shoot outside the former Longbridge Works, Cecil will be handed over to the Abingdon Works Centre, We will travel there via a scenic run which you are invited to join.

Meet at 10am as the Start time will be 11am.

There is no charge for this other than perhaps £5 for charity. A route book will be provided.

At Gaydon we hope to organise a group photo alongside Old Number One, complete with Cecil in the driving seat, as a memento of a very special day.

Please note access to the museum proper will be subject to the normal ticket price.

This invitation is open to all MG Clubs.

If all this appeals to you please let us know so we can assess numbers.

MGCC MIDLAND CENTRE - LOCAL MEETS or NATTERS

Club Meets (also known as ‘Natters’ or ‘Pub Meets’) are monthly meetings that take place up and down the Country throughout the year and are an opportunity to talk MG over a pint!

The Midland Centre has a choice of 15 venues holding regular meetings ( or 'Natters' in MG jargon) on different evenings, one of which should be near you, so please drop in and meet other  like-minded enthusiasts over a drink or meal.  Some of these are joint meetings with our friends at the MG Octagon Car Club and/or the MG Owners Club.

If attending a natter for the first time, we do advise checking with the relevant contact.  Whilst we make every effort to ensure details are correct, please check with the organisers before embarking on a long journey. 

The link to the Midland Centre website can give you great information of all 15 of the meetings, so have a look and see if there is one near you, you may like to give it a try and continue with some great MG conversations, or even just meeting some interesting Car folk.

MG Car Club Awards 2023

The Club has secured two prestigious awards against stiff opposition.

The first was from the Octane Historic Motoring Awards held at the Dorchester Hotel on November 15 and was presented to The MG Car Club for ‘Club of the Year’. The key factor for this award was the MG and Triumph 100 event at Silverstone.

The second was the ‘Motoring Spectacle Award’ and was awarded on Thursday November 23 at the Royal Automobile Club as part of their Historic Awards ceremony.
