COVID-19 outbreak: On 2021-07-19 mainland Scotland was placed in Level 0, in line with the an a strategic framework released on 2021-06-22. However, this relaxation in rules does not affect LCV tasks directly. Scotland is expected to move beyond Level 0 on 2021-08-09 and this may have effects on how we run our tasks.
Accordingly our task programme, 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 Puggled Mucker is our quarterly newsletter, containing the details of the current task programme, a note from our Co-ordinator and any social events.
Until June 2011 the Puggled Mucker was a more substantial journal containing long-form articles, recipes and other content. In addition we would prepare an Annual Review consisting of the highlights of the Mucker over the past year.
Due to falling circulation we took the decision to publish the articles on the website instead and redesign the Mucker as the condensed newsletter it is today.
The Mucker is sent to our clients, and to volunteers who have subscribed to it.
Here is an archive of all issues of the Puggled Mucker, going back to 2008. Issues older than this exist only in hardcopy form.
