COVID-19 outbreak: The current Omicron wave is concerning but for now our task programme continues to run in line with government guidance for Beyond Level 0 (as updated on 2021-11-16) As outdoor activities our tasks are relatively safe but use of the minibus is potentially risky. Therefore we request that all volunteers who are using the minibus to attend tasks should take a lateral flow test on the morning of the task, hopefully catching any cases before they cause an issue. Additional measures may well be announced by the government over the coming days and weeks; should these affect LCV's activities we will inform volunteers.
On a happier note, our exciting task programme for Q1 2022 is now available. We hope to see you on task soon.
The Lothians Conservation Volunteers carry out practical nature conservation work every weekend in and around Edinburgh and the Lothians for the benefit of wildlife, people and the environment.
As 2021 ends, we can proudly say that despite the global pandemic carrying on, LCV has had a busy year with tasks all around the Lothian. And as 2022 begins, we can only hope that the coming year will be as filled up as its first semester. You will find a variety of tasks for the first three months of the year in our task programme and we hope that you will be able to join us on many of them.
Our winter programme for the new year is now available.
Laura Marsh, our publicity officer has stepped down. We thank Laura for all her work over the years. Fortunately, Katie Koehler, who has been managing our social media presence for 2 years now has taken over the publicity role. There may have been some slight delays in response to emails during the transition; thanks for your patience
