Coordinator's Comments

COVID-19 outbreak: The tasks up to and including the 14th February 2021 have been cancelled. Please keep checking the task list page for updates.

On 2021-01-20 the Scottish Government updated the protection levels (tiers) assigned to various areas of the country as part of the strategic framework for control of coronavirus in Scotland. As parts of efforts to suppress the new faster-spreading coronavirus strain, the whole of mainland scotland including Edinburgh has been placed remain in extended Tier 4 measures. While the restrictions in both tier 3 and tier 4 continue to allow us to run tasks outdoors, the LCV trustees feel that in light of the rapidly changing situation and the express guidance to reduce contact we cannot in good conscience run tasks. Therefore all tasks up to and including the 14th of February are cancelled. We will review the situation after 2nd February 2021; hopefully the news will be better and we can resume our activities.

We are completing another successful season of LCV tasks where we visited a variety of established and new sites. We are due to start a new season soon but with the COVID-19 outbreak this has been delayed in accordance with government advice. Please check the website for updates.

On familiar ground as we approach our AGM, all committee posts are up for re-election in May. If interested in any posts, please contact any committee member.

On a more joyful note, we are also due to celebrate our 50th anniversary in the Summer and, as mentioned in the previous mucker, are looking to replace our minibus after over a decade of loyal service
