Default Sad news this morning about GeraintUK

For those of you who knew him (or knew of him), sadly this morning Geraint Williams (GeraintUK) lost his fight with bad health and passed away peacefully.

Many of you may have seen Geraint's final big project which was his 500bhp MG ZT-T build which was displayed at the 75 and ZT meet at Gaydon in April this year (the day after POL).

I've only known Geraint for the last couple of years, but I am so glad I met him and was lucky enough to see him and speak to him in person on a few occasions over the last 2 years. He was truly an amazing guy.

RIP Geraint.

Our thoughts are with Lynne and family.

Had the pleasure of meeting him on several occasions, great guy, nice to chat to, impressive ideas that came to fruition.

He'll be missed

Sorry to hear the bad news, thoughts are with his family. Out of interest was he a Safeclean franchisee?
