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 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.
