Covid 19 update

At Wirral Countryside Volunteers (WCV) we need to ensure the safety and wellbeing of volunteers and organisers alike.

Continuing the need to protect each other from the risk of Covid infection, we would still ask everybody to take the following precautions:

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?  As a general rule, wear suitable clothing and footwear for working outdoors in all weathers.  Bring refreshments as well - drink and food for breaks and lunchtimes.

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.
