We are working hard to ensure that we can still run events this year and are putting measures in place to keep everyone safe! Please follow our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.


Our aim is to help conserve and maintain the natural environment in the local area; this can involve anything from chopping down invasive trees and planting native species, to creating micro-habitats or maintaining our pond and paths.

Trips away

We also organise trips throughout the year to help out conservation groups across the UK. These included going to the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales and Flamborough Head. The annual trip to the Peak District comprises of a fun weekend spent in the beautiful countryside, working alongside the local rangers to clear, chop and protect the natural environment, usually culminating in the building of a great big bonfire! The trips are both rewarding and a great way to meet new people.


LUUCV also organise regular social events, which include Otley runs, games nights, environmental film/documentary screenings and nature walks!

A few highlights from the last year 2019/20 included:
