The Lothians Conservation Volunteers carry out practical nature conservation work every weekend in and around Edinburgh and the Lothians for the benefit of wildlife, people and the environment.
We held our AGM on 14th May and firstly we would like to extend a big "thankyou" to Peter Gilbert who stepped down as LCV's Training Organiser at the AGM. Peter, we hope to see you on task soon.
As I write this, we have just had a successful residential in Galloway at the end of a good quarter for LCV and look forward to the upcoming quarter.
Six of us gathered at the LCV toolshed on the Friday evening looking forward to our weekend away. Willie was our designated leader and he and Sarah shared the driving between Edinburgh and Dumfriesshire. The traffic on route was kind to us so we pushed on to Castle Douglas for our chip shop stop. Thanks to Sarah's googling we found a terrific one (Moore's) which served an impressive selection of takeaway items, including a special of the day "mango chilli prawn wrap" - traditional chippies take heed!.
