It’s been eventful, in a positive way, all our prickly pals are still here, unable to be released due to the very cold nights, they are making progress still, little Emily is growing nicely and enjoying her food and warmth. Us rescuers still have work to do though, it’s made easier with the support from not only our finders but members of the general public who make monetary donations, Nancy is one of these kind people. Thank you so much. The money is used for food, specialist food is needed for baby season, equipment and, more importantly, keeping a well stocked medicine store which does help me save these lovelies like Emily, pictured.
A special thanks goes to June, Marlene and Valerie and Lorraine who are full of busy making some wonderful goodies for our Easter Fair which is being held at The Scout Centre, Bluebell Way between 1pm and 5pm on Saturday the 12th March, please come and see us, there is lots of literature available about how to help our hedgehogs, a tombola and a raffle!
Covid restrictions have been eased too, I will be out and about more, thank you Keith for inviting me to the petting zoo, and Thornbeck College for having Mitzi and myself visit them.I didn’t know this but my visit was published in the Northern Echo, a very nice write up too, thank you Donella and Wally for giving me a copy, admittedly I didn’t see that one coming!
On a more serious note, the nights are getting lighter and our children are out after school playing ball games, can I ask you all to lift your nets off the grass so any passing hedgehog doesn’t get trapped in the netting. We don’t want anything bad to happen to them, the Pudsey Walk Green is just one example. A hedgehogs eyesight is poor, they won’t see these nets in the dark.
Tip of the week: The British Hedgehog Preservation Society can be reached on 01584 890801 for help and advice or email myself at
