Just a reminder that the register is laying on a weekend of entertainment on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th July:
Saturday July 6th
This day is being organised by David Halliday (phone 01844 342224 or 07912 559313, e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). As many of you will know from Magnette history lessons the Barley Mow was the backdrop for many famous MG publicity photographs and the landlord has agreed we can reproduce the setting using our own cars, an ideal opportunity for you.
Sunday July 7th
The AGM will be held at Kimber House commencing at 10.00 am prompt.
There is ample parking at Kimber House. The AGM will be followed by a visit to the Abingdon Works Centre Show. For details of the show and also booking forms see www.mgabingdon.co.uk/carshow. Click on EVENTS and go to July 7th for flyer and entry form. The Magnette Register will have a dedicated parking area and admission is free if you book in advance.
N.B. If you don’t book it will cost you £5 and you will have to park in the public car park.
See you at the meeting.
Safe motoring

13th June 2013

Don't forget that MGLive! at Silverstone is happening this weekend! The register awaits you with new Magnette60 regalia and there is a dedicated Register parking. Bring your MAGNETTE!

10th June 2013

Stephen Tickell included a short report about the 2013_05_Crystal Palace Revival weekend, where the Register presented two Magnettes to celebrate the diamond jubilee. I also added a new Monthly Picture. Enjoy!

1st June 2013

Magnette60 regalia will soon be available. There's a new Regalia page with details of mugs, polo shirts and grille badges, although we don't yet have online ordering. The grille badges are expected to be in demand, so it's advisable to reserve yours before the event (some people in US and Australia have already ordered them, and distribution there will be handled locally).
