Lou Shorten Tribute 8/9th October 2022

On a notably sunny October weekend our Norfolk event followed a well established format, with 10 Magnettes on Saturday at John Shorten’s open house (in Lenwade) where a buffet lunch was enjoyed in the garden and the Concours and Pride of Ownership were judged. There was also a raffle which seemed to be happily engineered so that everyone came away with a prize !

Jack and Kevin Skuce’s distinctive all-ivory Varitone had already collected a class win at the MGLive Concours, and attracted much interest and admiration for the standard of restoration and attention to detail. Sure enough, when results were announced after dinner in the nearby Wensum Valley Hotel, the Skuces received the NTG Trophy from chairman Paul Batho. The PoO trophy went to Mike and Julie Parker, who have only owned their Birch/Twilight Grey Varitone for a year. They paid tribute to the previous owner Ian Hunt, also present at the dinner

On Sunday 11 Magnettes were gathered at Holkham Hall for a special guided tour of the estate arranged by Paul Bloomfield. Thanks to John and Cynthia Harris for organizing the whole weekend
