This will be my MG TF’s first winter under my ownership.
I’ve SORN it from October until April, however I intend it give it a 20 minute run each month to keep things moving and lubricated.
Any other suggestions?
Should I disconnect the battery?

Disconnecting the battery is the best option if you can't connect a battery conditioner, leave off the handbrake if you can and chock the wheels, run it up to temp every now and then and move it a few feet back and forwards to prevent the tyres deformation damp absorption pods are good inside.

Can I ask why you aren't using it through winter?

Because I only wanted a fun summer car, driving with top down.
To be honest I don’t think it’s very practical as a daily drive.
I have a Nissan Leaf and a Nissan Juke that we use for daily drives, I don’t even take the MG if it’s raining.
