Don't forget - if you don't have access to facebook, you can still see (well, sort of) our Group Page on this website at Other News. And you can also see the ELC Rangers page there, which is often updated several times a week. Or why not join facebook and see them in full? You can even post yourself on the ELCV site (I didn't mean that - but yes, it could be a selfie!).
Well, the East Lothian Countryside Volunteers finally have a live website!
Hopefully you will find it useful as a news feed, for reference, and especially the Dates page. It's also geared towards attracting new volunteers - we can always do with more help: share it with the buttons in the footer of any page.
Have a good look round. And let us know what you think - all comments are helpful, whether suggestions or criticism (or praise!).

Every year, the council ranger service host a day for all the countryside volunteers, as a thank-you for all our hard (and obviously totally unpaid!) work. Here’s a reminder on YouTube of that full & happy day this year (& thanks to all the contributors).
You know they say its the journey rather than the destination? – well that’s certainly true of this video of our Christmas lunch!
We really enjoyed our Christmas lunch at the Main Course in Gullane. Was it that the food was outstanding? Or was it the company? Or was it we were hungry and thirsty after walking from Aberlady? Or all of the above! And thanks again to Duncan – for arranging the ideal winter walking weather. Some pics above, or the full video below!
Don’t forget the VOLLY JOLLY – the annual get together for all the conservation volunteers, with mini-workshops (see provisional list), lunch and fun! On Saturday October 1, at the East Lothian Outdoor Learning Centre, Balcarres Road Musselburgh. Let Duncan know if you plan on coming (he needs to know how many sandwiches to make)
A great trip out for all the volunteers, on the seabird centre catamaran (are you sure? – it didn’t look like it!) to Craigleith and the Bass Rock. With expert commentary throughout. Watch this space for the winners of the best gannet photo competition!
