Welsh group founder dies

publication date: Mar 13, 2017

 

Terry Davies The first chairman and president of the Welsh Motoring Writers' group, Terry Davies, has died aged 84.

 

Terry contributed to the Wrexham Leader, Chester Standard and Country Quest magazine among many others, winning the Pirelli Award in 1978. Together with the late John Edwards he was instrumental in establishing WMW in 1992 and was the natural choice of chairman in its formative years.

Current group chairman Huw Thomas said, " Wrexham-born, Terry Davies was a courteous ‘gentleman-writer’ of the old school. He possessed a fine musical voice but was equally adept at turning out a sharp, well-researched road test. He interviewed some of motorsport’s greats including Fangio, Moss, Hunt and Stewart.

"Terry had not been well for some years but had borne his ill-health with characteristic optimism and resilience. It is a comfort to know his death in hospital this week was tranquil, peaceful and pain-free. He was highly thought of, his friendship greatly valued and he will be sorely missed. Terry is survived by his wife Pamela, daughter Jill, son Simon, grand-daughter Seren and grandson Alexander."

The funeral will take place at Amlosgfa Pentrebychan Crematorium (LL14 4EP) on Friday 17 March at 2.30pm. 

Thewesterngroup chairman, Robin  Roberts added, "Terry well understood the issues which all regional motoring writers face and was a strong advocate of pushing forward their case with the industry, but it was always done in a very amiable and  effective manner. Without Terry the regional writing landscape would look very different today and his contribution cannot be overlooked."
