LCV How To...

COVID-19 outbreak: From 2021-08-09 all areas of Scotland have moved "beyond level 0" in the a strategic framework released on 2021-06-22. Most legal restrictions on our activities have ended and we have increased our minibus capacity to allow for more volunteers without their own transport to come on task.

Please look at the task list page to see the programme and the remaining requirements upon volunteers to help suppress the virus.

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
