LCV How To...

COVID-19 outbreak: As of 21st March 2022 all major restrictions have been lifted. Our task programme will continue as before.

From 1st April we have significantly increased the number of volunteers permitted in our minibus. We hope this will make it easier for you to come on task with us. In line with guidance for public transport, face masks are encouraged but are no longer required.

Lateral flow testing is no longer generally available. As before, volunteers who are experiencing symptoms should not attend tasks

For LCV to operate successfully we require more than just the skills used on our task. This section covers various things leaders, drivers and others might need to do. We hope it is useful. If there is a procedure that you feel would benefit from a "How-To" document, please contact
