MURRAY MEYER

Sadly we note the passing on Sunday of Murray, a very long-standing and fully involved member of our MG club.

In keeping with Murray's wishes a Private Family Burial will be held and, for all who would like to attend, a "Remembering Murray Gathering" this Saturday, July 27th, at 2p.m. at Rossendale Events Venue, 100 Old Tai Tapu Road, Kennedys Bush, Christchurch.

Marie has let us know that it would be lovely if some coming brought their MG cars - they were very much part of Murray's life.

Our thoughts and best wishes are with Marie and family at this time.

Welcome!

The MG Car Club Canterbury Centre has its roots in the original 'MG Car Club of New Zealand', formed in 1952 when many of the country's motorsport enthusiasts drove our favourite marque in the shape of TCs, TAs, Ps and Js.

From those early beginnings the NZ Club has devolved into four major Centres, two in the North Island and two in the South.  Each of these Centres is autonomous, organising competitive and social events for members within its regions. Like the 'Crusaders' our region includes Nelson, Marlborough and the West Coast as well as Canterbury. There are also a range of inter-Centre and national activities you are able to enjoy.  And of course, if you are visiting another region you will be most welcome to participate in any of their events, competitive or social.

Like most MG Clubs around the world we are affiliated to the MGCC UK ensuring access to badging, logos and so on.  We also maintain regular contact with a number of Centres in NZ, Australia, the US and the UK to help ensure we offer the best possible benefits and MG enjoyment for all of our members.​

For more detail of what we do, please visit the 'About Us' section.
