Hedgehog Street did send out emails. Have you looked in your ‘spam’ or ‘junk’ folder as sometimes things like that end up there. I had one on 27th March and was really hopeful that the petition would get a good boost. Just after that on one day the increase was 2509 and the next 1542. Unfortunately after that it slowed down again, which was disappointing and nowhere near the 48,000 plus. I do wonder, though, whether some of that number were duplicates which may have arisen as a result of the improvements to Hedgehog Street last year, although that wouldn’t account for all of it. I have begun to suspect that a lot of people don’t read their emails, or all of them, anyway.
I agree that not many people may be looking at the Forum, especially as hogs are only just beginning to return.
I don’t know how big the membership of BHPS is, or whether they have sent their Spring communication yet, but possibly there may be more signatures as a result of that.
The point now is, that one signature from each of us is not enough. We all need to get more people to sign and pass the message on.
