Wirral Countryside Volunteers (WCV) was established in 1985. We are a volunteer-
WCV do aim to promote both the skills involved in carrying out these tasks and the reasons why we think that they are worth doing. We offer training days in hedgelaying, and for that we sometimes bring in outside experts to help us. However, any task day can be a training day for those who wish to learn from the experience and expertise of others. The training tends to be informal and based on the job.
The arrangement of our programme of events is the result of a group meeting which is usually held every three months. WCV 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 and much more recently these have been supported and extended by the “Intrepid Midweekers”, who have their own programme of tasks (though this often links to the main programme).
