    You may know that this has been Hedgehog Awareness Week.One month ago I wrote a letter to the Primary school that my house backs on to to see if they would be interested in setting up a hedgehog street with me.They answered mmediately. Yes they would love to. As a result, this week I’ve been very busy working at our local Primary School, along with Sara from Sara’s Hogspital, and Stevie her blind hedgehog.Laura Rand and Katharine Poulson, two teachers at the school, have set up a hedgehog Street project at their school, resulting in lots of activities and presentations,hedgehog houses made by John and the eco club boys, an assembly and a hedgehog release.The event was covered in the local newspaper,The Eastwood and Kimberley Advertiser, so all round it was a very successful week, alkeep going?-though I must confess, I now feel exhausted. How do you young teachers keep going?Anyway a very enjoyable and worthwhile collaberation between our local Primary school and members of the wider community, involving all ages from 5-65 years of age.

    Thank you everyone.One small footnote. Our hedgehog release was messed up by our hedgehogs Kev and Perry having other ideas. They escaped the morning of the release.(I have had members of our staff at work whistling the tune of The Great Escape all day).I heard them rootling around in the no man’s land between our garden and the school last night, and they came for the food I had put out for them, so they are fine. All of this from an initial letter. I will now have between seven and eight hedgehogs happily living in our area.

    Hi Anne

    That sounds really brilliant. An example to us all of what can be achieved.
    I love that the independent minded hedgehogs chose to do their own thing!

    I hope the hogs all settle in well.
