COVID-19 outbreak: The current Omicron wave is concerning but for now our task programme continues to run in line with government guidance for Beyond Level 0 (as updated on 2021-11-16) As outdoor activities our tasks are relatively safe but use of the minibus is potentially risky. Therefore we request that all volunteers who are using the minibus to attend tasks should take a lateral flow test on the morning of the task, hopefully catching any cases before they cause an issue. Additional measures may well be announced by the government over the coming days and weeks; should these affect LCV's activities we will inform volunteers.
On a happier note, our exciting task programme for Q1 2022 is now available. We hope to see you on task soon.
LCV has a number of policies. This page contains links to the current versions.
This policy outlines LCV's approach to mitigating the risk to volunteers when using the minibus during the COVID-19 pandemic. These rules are non-negotiable. Any questions regarding their application should be directed to the Minibus manager
