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 are pleased to announce that we are resuming our conservation tasks. From 11th April we shall restart tasks in the Edinburgh area, and (hopefully) we will be able to have tasks further afield from May.
Since LCV is a registered charity and provides "voluntary and charitable services" we are legally able to operate but considered it unwise to do so while case numbers were high in early 2021. We do not yet have a full task programme planned so please keep checking the tasks page for further updates.
