Lavant Parish Council

Lavant Volunteer Task Force

The Lavant Volunteer Task Force (LVTF) is up and running!

 

The LVTF has been formed so that the wide range of maintenance tasks that need doing around the village can tackled, in support of any more formal work undertaken by the various responsible authorities. This can range from patch clearing to general maintenance work.

 

In order to ensure continued progress, it has been decided that Tuesday morning each week will be LVTF time (9.30am-1.00pm). The nature and location of work is confirmed in advance.

Recent Activities

So far the LVTF has cleared an extensive stretch of undergrowth along the verges of Centurion Way to the north of the village, and completed some essential manicuring of trees and bushes around the Village Green. Yards of undergrowth round the edges of the Football Field have been cleared, check out the photos of volunteers in action in the gallery to the right. The wooden bus stops at Pook Lane roundabout and the top of St Nicholas Rd have also had a makeover.

The Small Print - Safety & Insurance

Work will generally be undertaken by a minimum of two people. Appropriate training will be provided, if required, for particular tasks. Any equipment used, whether supplied by the LVTF or by the individuals, must be in full working order with the appropriate safety controls. Volunteers must wear appropriate protective clothing for the tasks undertaken, e.g. gloves, safety helmets, high visibility clothing, goggles. The above requirements plus a completed risk assessment for the specific task(s) must be in place in order for volunteers to be covered by insurance from LPC and WSCC.
