Due to the information on Lou Shorten's death, we did no update for a while, to keep these information on top. But over Easter two events took place:
The traditional Register opening "Magnettes & Steam" in the UK and the National Meet in Melbourne, where several Magnettes attended.

Of course you can still leave your comments on Lou Shorten's obituary.

It is with deep regret that we have to inform you that at 2.50 pm yesterday afternoon, Lou Shorten lost her battle with cancer. Everybody who ever was in need for parts will have known her - and her knowledge of MAGNETTEs (and owners as well).
We lost a character and our Register President.
Our thoughts are with John and her family.

UPDATE - the funeral will take place on Monday 11th May, 1.15pm at St Faith's Crematorium, Norwich NR10 3LF, and afterwards at Lenwade House Hotel. If you are planning to attend please contact Peter Martin (01580-763056)

UPDATE 2 - We set up an obituary on Lou, please leave your comments to make it an electronic book of condolence.
