Early in the year, life was pretty normal and we were still meeting on the second Monday of the month, each time in a different pub. This was the Surrey Section having FUN in February, even if we were a bit out of focus!
Then, just a we were getting ready for the 2020 car show season, everything changed. However, we decided to make the best of it with a few open-air socially distanced get-togethers when we were legally allowed.
Our first meet was in the car park at Denbies Vineyard, near Dorking in mid-June.
Meanwhile, as in so many garages and gardens up and down the country, work was underway on our Rovers.
Dave got to work on the door cards of his 1961 100 during the first lockdown, and refinished them with a coat of Vinylkote paint. The result is clear to see.
Elsewhere in the depths of the Surrey countyside, Mike & Moira enjoyed lockdown by holding their own rally in the garden with their 60, P5b saloon and P5b Coupé.
In early August, Surrey Section members were out in the open air again,
meeting this time at Headley Heath for a well separated chat.
With the meeting going on the distance,
one young lady tried to get in all the pictures!

Of course, there were many sunny days which meant the Rover had to be taken for a solo run.
This is Dave's 100 with it's refurbished door cards.
More recently, as the weather was cooling down in October, Henfold Lakes near Newdigate was the venue for a meeting - just three P4s and Morris Minor.
Some cars did not get out as much as they should have done, but after 3 months in the garage, Sam got his 1963 110 out for a late afternoon local warm up.
The Surrey Section have a Facebook page as well which we will add to in 2021. We would be delighted to hear from anyone with a P4, or indeed any other classic Rover. Our Contact details are here or, of course, you can reach us via Facebook.
