COVID-19 outbreak Phase 2/3: On 2020-06-24 the Scottish Government released further guidance giving an indicative timeline for further relaxation of the COVID-19 restrictions. 10th July is the expected date from which extended groups of people can meet outdoors with physical distancing.

We believe that this relaxation will allow us to resume local tasks, and therefore our first task is likely to be held on 12th July at Blackford Hill. However, we are unable to confirm that this task is going ahead until the planned Scottish Government review on 9th July. Therefore, please book as normal but please be aware that we may have to cancel at short notice.

Our Coronavirus volunteering policy statement gives further information about how LCV tasks will be run once we are able to resume work.

LCV resi at Knowetop Lochs and Carstramon Wood

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!.
