Just been to set up the tree for the festival this weekend (I have uploaded some photos in the gallery)
Some artistic licence involved – I don’t believe hedgehogs actually hibernate in copper coloured tinsel??? 🙂 The rules state the tree had to be artificial with a festive feel (so no natural branches, leaves as I had originally planned.)
The picture frame contains easily assimilated info to inform and educate re: our spiny friends. The hollow log contains ‘please help yourself’ chocolate coins and wooden keyrings with a hedgie picture and the website address to this our ‘hedgehogstreet’
We are hoping for lots of visitors over the weekend, so I do hope my little tree helps spread the message.
PS. For the pedantic amongst you, I realise the resin hibernating hog is actually an African pygmy NOT European, but it was the best I could find 🙁
