    Hi all, I’m in Hook, Hampshire and after taking part in last weeks Zoom meeting from Kent Wildlife “Helping Hedgehogs in Gardens” I’ve just started a Champions group on our local estate.
    So far, we have a group name, and I’ve knocked on all the doors (5) where someone had recorded a sighting on the Big Hedgehog Map. This led me to chat to other people along the way, and so far we have 7 households interested and 1 possible (they were out so I left a leaflet).
    My next plan is to wait for those 7 people to email me, so we can meet and plan what to do next. In the meantime I will put up posters outside my house

    Has anyone any advice for starting up?


    Hi Holt,

    Like you I am also a new Champion. I am very impressed with the start that you have made!
    I was also thinking of knocking on the doors near me where someone has recorded a sighting on the hedgehog map. I couldn’t find the actual number of the house, just the rough location on the street. Did you manage to find the number of the house or did you just try a few on the street till you struck lucky? Thanks,

    Well done with the efforts, you’ve already made. Hopefully you are both making good use of the resources here:

    FREE downloadable resources

    If you have a local/parish newsletter of some sort, you could write something for that as well and give an email address to reply to.

    Good luck!


    Wow what great ideas. I hope you get replies after all your efforts. I have printed a mini news update and along with the official flyers available in the resources section posted through all my neighbours doors. Not a huge response though. Plenty of people are interested so I tend to have informal chats ‘to test the water’ if they’re interested I get them more info.


    Also get your local primary schools and colleges interested by emailing with the Hedgehog Friendly Campus info.
