Welcome to the LBCV website


Thank you, for visiting the Lea Bridge Conservation Volunteers' (LBCV)  website, which is still having content added, so please bookmark and revisit again soon. 

LBCV do practical hands-on conservation tasks, the first Sunday of every month, in North-East London.

April/May 2015 Conservation Tasks

LBCV's traditional conservation day of the first Sunday of each month has been changed to avoid the bank holidays in April and May 2015.

So April's task will be on Sunday 12 April at the Waterworks Nature Garden and the May task will be on Sunday 10 May 2015.

As always more details in the task reminder once the site visit has been done with the Ranger.

Join Us Doing Practical Conservation

If you have an interest in nature or environmental conservationism, then volunteer with us on the first Sunday of any month doing practical conservation tasks in North East London's largest open space, the Lea Valley Regional Park. We have done volunteering tasks from The East India Dock Basin on the Thames to Coppermill Fields in Waltham Abbey. These practical tasks range from woodland management, such as coppicing, the countryside skills of hedge laying and dead hedging to the removal of invasive vegetation with a traditional Bramble Bash.

Everybody is welcome to volunteer with LBCV doing hands-on practical conservation tasks in North East London, on the first Sunday of the month. No experience is needed; we provide the training and tools along with the tea, coffee and biscuits, bring your own packed lunch. Please wear suitable clothing for the weather and stout footwear. We will endeavour to do the planned task, no matter what the weather is doing; a task will only be changed if the weather makes it unsafe to do the planned work.

Please arrive from 9:30am onwards at 1 Connaught Close, Leyton, London E10 7QS, for a prompt 10am departure. The meeting place is the house opposite the Lea Valley Riding Centre on Lea Bridge Road. Bus numbers 48, 55 and 56 run along the Lea Bridge Road, alight by the Riding Centre. There is inside cycle parking available at Connaught Close. If you are going to be late, or wish to join us on site at the start of the task, please email or text 07757 766950 before 9am on the task day, so we can provide enough tools. Please provide a contact number so we can inform you if the task has to be changed at the last minute.

If you have any queries please check the Frequently Ask Question (FAQ) pages and then use the Contact Us form to email LBCV with your unanswered queries.

The monthly newsletter no longer contains local green events, training sessions, other groups' volunteer work days but is now a reminder of the task sent closer to the date, please sign up for the monthly LBCV task reminder, over on the left.

Thanks for visiting.
