The LCV kettle

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

About our kettle

We've bought a BTCV Brewer Kettle from Tim Jones at Appropriate Development Consultants. The kettle burns small twigs very efficiently, and can boil water for 10 people in about 10 minutes (including gathering the fuel).

We used to use a gas ring, but the kettle is quicker and lighter and it doesn't use fossil fuel or contribute to the greenhouse effect.

Instructions
