Hi Suzanne,

I am just “over the road”, well, the A45, in Rushden where we too are lucky to have a fair few hoggies. Most of my neighbours and friends are now on the case just through casual conversation rather than battering their doors down. I find gentle persuasion works better than nagging!

You may not know that Animals In Need in Little Irchester get loads of hedgehogs taken to them and I’ve donated money purely for the hogs (I don’t want it spent on cats!) and last winter they had 100+ inmates.

I do wonder how many hogs were displaced by Rushden Lakes shopping centre and with the upcoming Rushden East development I suspect a lot more will be upset. ENDC don’t seem particularly interested but just make the usual dismissive “all our plans are reviewed by………” platitudes.
