COVID-19 outbreak: On 2021-05-11 the Scottish Government released an update to the Coronavirus restrictions in force. The relaxation of restrictions is proceeding according to plan and indicates the general level of risk is acceptable. Our tasks in the Edinburgh area resumed in April and we are undertaking tasks elsewhere as well.
Therefore our task programme to the end of June 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.
