Reader Tony Jakeman has been in touch to ask if I can plug this event. West Midlands Hedgehog Rescue have an open day planned at The White Horse, New Horse Road, Chesly Hay this Saturday, 7th September 2013 from 11am to 4pm.
There will be plenty of Hedgehog-related fun – as well as activities and games for children and adults of all ages.
This is a very worthwhile and important service, particularly in light of the declining hedgehog population in the UK. These charming, often misunderstood creatures are a very important part of our ecology, and it’s good to see people fighting for them.
Please pop along and support Joan and friends if you can.

This group is run by my amazing friend Joan, last year she helped over 400 hogs. She needs all the help she can get and the annual open day is a great fundraiser as well as being a really fun day. There is hedgehog stroking and fussing with Joan’s special friend Cellie who haso an incredible capacity to soak up hours and hours of fuss. Come along and see for yourself.
I want a baby Hog!
