COVID-19 outbreak: On 2021-07-19 mainland Scotland was placed in Level 0, in line with the an a strategic framework released on 2021-06-22. However, this relaxation in rules does not affect LCV tasks directly. Scotland is expected to move beyond Level 0 on 2021-08-09 and this may have effects on how we run our tasks.
Accordingly our task programme, to the end of September will continue. Hope to see you on task soon.
The LCV trustees' view is that LCV, a registered charity provides "voluntary and charitable services" and "an organised [outdoor] activity". These activities are expressly permitted in the relevant legislation. We may adopt other measures (e.g. restricting numbers) where it is appropriate to do so for the safety of our clients and volunteers.
We held our AGM on 12th May, using videoconferencing due the COVID-19 outbreak. As a result, here is the list of committee members for 2020/21.
We now have a social media officer to assist the publicity officer in their task of publicising LCV's activities. Hopefully we will be able to have some soon once the Dread Virus is in retreat! Though there are a couple of vacant committee positions (Fundraising and Training Officers) but we have a plan to fill these in the near term.
Finally, the annual report and accounts are substantively complete, but we are awaiting some documentation before these can be finalised.
