There was also a nice article from The Motor dated 21st October 1953, which was as you know, the time the MAGNETTE was shown to the public at the Earls Court Show, in my mailbox sent in from Paul Barrow. Many thanks! Read here...

The Wiltshire weekend is now just a one day event, on 15th July, due partly to limited accommodation in the area because of an air-show on the same weekend. The planned visit to Lacock Abbey has unfortunately been cancelled, but the Saturday programme will still include Swindon Steam museum, Register AGM and evening meal. Please contact Mac Pile (01793 851169) if you plan to attend - he may be able to advise on local B&B options if you do wish to stay overnight.
