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.
To aid social distancing, we encourage volunteers to meet us on site wherever possible. Our task programme will tell you where and when to meet for the task you have booked. Meeting us on site helps to maintain social distancing.
However, for volunteers who cannot meet us on site we have put in place a system to allow safe use of our minibu based on the guidance for public transport operators. The key features of our system are as follows:
Volunteers who are in a high-risk group, while very welcome, should consider carefully the risks they face (or may pose to other volunteers) before using the bus (and by attending tasks). If you require further information our full policy on use of the minibus includes all the measures to be taken by leaders, drivers and volunteers.
For day tasks, if you are getting the bus we will usually meet on the north side of St Andrew Square, Edinburgh, at 9.30 a.m. sharp. If we are meeting in another location or time, you will be told after booking your place on the bus.
Look out for our white minibus.
