Where Tomorrow Shines

The shiny happy people at Bolton Conservation Volunteers are having to take steps to protect its members. BCV's members aren't just volunteers, they are family. For most of our family BCV's task days are an important of their lives, providing a chance to restore our natural landscape, help wildlife, and to meet up and socialise.

Covid-19 has changed all of that.

We are having to take the sad decision to disband for the duration of the pandemic. How long this will be we don't know but protecting our family is a priority and we have to take action to ensure its safety.

From 23/03/20 all tasks, indoor meetings, and other events are cancelled, even our flagship Wildfest event is under review. In the group's 44 year history we have never had such a heartbreaking decision to make. The situation will be reviewed on a monthly basis taking into account Government and NHS advice available at the time, decisions will appear here on the BCV website task page and will also be sent out by text.

Thank you to everyone- our volunteer family, friends, clients, Bolton Green Umbrella, Bolton Forum for Greenspace - for your support. Hopefully in the not too distant future we will again get to meet you in the crowd, for now keep us in your hearts where tomorrow shines.

Stay safe and well.
