Hog in the limelight


Who doesn’t love the ‘hogs? A great event in aid of very dedicated people doing an important job.

Reader and great freind of the blog Tony Jakeman has been in touch to ask if I can plug the above event. West Midlands Hedgehog Rescue have an open day planned at The White Horse Pub, Cheslyn Hay this Saturday, 6th September 2014 from 12 noon until 4pm.

There will be plenty of Hedgehog-related fun – as well as activities and games for children and adults of all ages. You can even meet Cellie the hedgehog!

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.

The full address of the venue is: The White Horse Pub, Mt Pleasant, Off New Horse Road, Cheslyn Hay WS6 7AG.

Hello Bob!

I wonder if you could advertise this event for me?

It’s the West Midlands Hedgehog Rescue open day.

This group is run by my amazing friend Joan, last year she helped loads of 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.

  1. Hi, Ive just had Joan here to collect a hedgehog we found this afternoon trapped in barbed wire along the canal by castings. She was great and assured us that she will make him well again.
