A huge thank you to both Maddy and Vicky who are both from Redbourn in Hertfordshire for helping the hedgehogs with awareness leaflets. They delivered hundreds of leaflets to local residents detailing ways the local community can help the hedgehogs by encouraging small changes to their gardens.
The leaflet was expertly designed by Maddy which listed some useful tips and things to watch out for to help the local hedgehog population in Redbourn.
Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary is often in the local area rescuing hedgehogs that have found themselves in precarious situations. We are so pleased to hear that the local residents have taken the advice and information on the leaflets and turned them in to actions by making Redbourn a Hedgehog Friendly village.
Well done the both of you!
