After 14 years, Duncan is moving to pastures new. He will be greatly missed. Hopefully the ELC fully understands this. But if not, and if his edifice does slowly fade, his grandchild the ELCV does lives on to help perpetuate his legacy! Anyway, see below one of his last contributions, where there was also a small tribute from some of us (mostly Jane!)
Arrghh!! Facebook changed its rules in April and we can no longer display the posts from our Facebook Group page. Hopefully facebook will allow it again soon.
But in the meantime, you can see our old Path Wardens facebook page here. If you like the look of it, why not just take the plunge and join our group page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/ELCVPost/. NB: In my view, all these scare stories about data harvesting are a global strategic storm in a teacup, or better a thimble!
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!).
Removing gorse at Traprain Law: Thomas, Rick & Florence. NB: I recognise Thomas, but of the other three, not sure which is which!

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).
Well, the expanded charity – ELCV – met finally for the first time to elect its trustees – everyone in the picture (apart from the council rangers) and the office bearers (formal words for those mugs who volunteered to do all the work).

- Membership Sec: John Laws
- IT Manager: Dave Quarendon
- Social Convenor: Thomas Bower

See the full details in the Minutes 17-09-27
The Path Wardens charity has now officially expanded into ELCV – East Lothian Countryside Volunteers. Our first EGM, where we will elect the office bearers/trustees, is on Wednesday 27th, 2pm in the Town House, Haddington. Be there!
