Covid 19 update

At Wirral Countryside Volunteers (WCV) we need to ensure the safety and wellbeing of volunteers and organisers alike.  We have been following the Government's guidelines throughout the pandemic.  Currently, for the few events which will be hosted by the group, numbers will be limited to a maximum of 6 participants and will only be available to WCV members.  For each event a full Covid Risk Assessment is completed and circulated to all participants.

Wirral Countryside Volunteer Events

WCV’s programme of events is the result of a group meeting which is usually held every three months. WCV do have the usual officers, a chairperson, an honorary secretary, a treasurer and a membership secretary; but all meetings are open to any members who wish to be present, and all are invited to play a part in deciding what we are taking on as tasks.

From its beginnings WCV have held weekend tasks; much more recently these weekend tasks have been supported and extended by the “Intrepid Midweekers”, who have their own programme of tasks (though this often links to the main programme).  Events are briefly described in the table below.

All events are fully assessed and the necessary Risk Assessments are completed and made available to all.  All events are supported by the required support mechanisms, First Aiders, etc

What to Bring

We are often asked, by volunteers, what to bring along to WCV events?  All events have their own requirements, what you will need to bring, will be included in the detail of the event.

What's in it for you?  Fresh air, exercise, discover some new talents, learn some natural history, meet - and spend time - with like-minded people.
