Local government backing
22nd June 2011
Hedgehog Street receives a glowing endorsement from Councillor Andrew Curtin, London Borough of Havering, having been approached by Hedgehog Champion Lynda Austin.
Lynda distributed Hedgehog Street posters and leaflets to her local libraries and then called upon her local councillor for his support. Cllr. Andrew Curtin, Cabinet Member for Culture, Towns and Communities told us: – “This is an excellent campaign. Conserving and being closer to nature helps to improve our experience of the world around us, broaden our emotions and sharpen our intellects and because of this is important for our mental and physical health as well as for its own sake.”
