COVID-19 outbreak: On 2021-06-22 the Scottish Government released an a new strategic framework. No new restrictions are introduced by this and, if all goes according to plan, restrictions may be relaxed further in July.

Accordingly our task programme, now extended to the end of September 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.


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.
