Welcome to the exciting new incarnation of the OCV newsletter. We hope you’ll like this more agile and up-to-date Weasel!
Since it first emerged all those eons ago (around 1977) The Weasel has undergone some transformations…
A tentative Weasel first pokes its head out, sensibly wary of this volunteer’s felling technique:
Spot the weasel!
By 1979 The Weasel poses more confidently:
Extra marks for innovative lettering
By the early Thatcher era of the 1980s, The Weasel seemed to have morphed into a megalomaniac press baron:
More Maxwell than Weasel!
The late 1980s saw a more noble Weasel profile:
Bright eyed and twitchy nosed
The 1990s took an artistic turn:
Are your eyes bigger than your stomach Mr Weasel?
By the late ‘noughties’, The Weasel had a more polished feel, but still maintained a cheeky outlook:
That’s no way to carry a bill hook and bowsaw
One of the main roles of The Weasel in the dark days before the internet had always been to publicise the upcoming task programme, but with the advent of the OCV website, and an entirely online task programme, The Weasel could roam more freely. Therefore, 2008 saw a new upstanding logo and a range of natty taglines:
….and now The Weasel has escaped the ties of a (supposedly, hmm) quarterly publication schedule and bounds into the future reporting items of news whenever and wherever it finds them. We hope you like this new evolution of The Weasel.
