Help us find a fitting purpose for Colin McLean's legacy

COVID-19 outbreak: As of 21st March 2022 all major restrictions have been lifted. Our task programme will continue as before.

From 1st April we have significantly increase the number of volunteers permitted in our minibus. While full capacity won't be achieved for a while yet, we hope this will make it easier for you to come on task with us. Face-masks (unless exempt) will continue to be required on our minibus.

Lateral flow testing is no longer generally available. As before, volunteers who are experiencing symptoms should not attend tasks

Colin McLean was an important part of LCV's history and now, a year after his death, he's helping to shape our future too, in the form of a legacy he left to us in his Will.

It's a considerable sum, generously given and gratefully received, and we're keen to ensure that we put the money to the best possible use and that we do so in a way that's a fitting tribute to Colin. To achieve this we hope to explore as many ideas as possible and who better to help us with this task than you - the people who knew Colin - through work or volunteering or as a friend. Or, indeed, all three.

Save the date

On the afternoon of Saturday 18 January 2014 LCV is hosting an event in Duddingston Kirk Hall where we can share ideas about the things we can do with Colin's legacy. The event will be part of our social calendar; there will be food to share and drinks to enjoy and afterwards, in keeping with LCV tradition, there will be a round or two of skittles at the Sheep Heid Inn.

We hope you can join us. Further details will be sent out later in the autumn, but in the meantime please save the date in your diaries. We'd love to involve as many of Colin's friends, colleagues and fellow volunteers as possible in making this important decision. And we also hope you will be as keen as we are to celebrate his passion for conservation and his many contributions to LCV.
