Hi Catherine

I think the lady who started the other petition is the lady who runs the wildlife rescue place that Brian May was also involved with and I suspect they must have contacts in certain areas, for instance North Devon seemed to have loads of signatures. But not sure whether the former MP who started a similar petition a while back came from around there (?) I’m just not sure why people don’t sign both.

I did notice on the BHPS Twitter (I sometimes look at it via the home page of Hh Street) that CJ (formerly from Eggheads) who is a patron of theirs had put a Twitter message on his Twitter about the A24 petition, which should have helped a bit. It would be handy if some of the other Patrons did likewise, but maybe they will later on. I think the petition was timed so that the spring mailing of BHPS members was within the time frame, so maybe there will be a boost then and 6th – 12th May Hedgehog Awareness Week. The way I see it, though, is the sooner the better, because the traps are out there now.

I managed to get some extra wording onto the old posters – after a great deal of trial and error – so it was a great help you pointing me in the right direction, because I had no idea!
