NORWICH WEEKEND - Saturday 4th October

As part of our season finale, we were once again invited to an open day at John & Lou Shortens premises in Lenwade, just outside of Norwich. This is always a firm favourite with the Magnette community because of the tremendous involvement John & Lou have had with "our" cars over many years. Over the course of the day, around 30 people popped in to say hello & be part of this very social occasion. Once again, the Shortens yard was filled with MG's with not even fairly heavy rain throughout the afternoon dampening the proceedings. Most people will be aware that Lou has not been in the best of health this year, but it good to see her enjoying her day amongst so many friends & acquaintances in the MG world.
