🛠 Toolkit for towns/villages

A linked-up town or village can have amazing repercussions for Britain’s hedgehogs. The impressive village of Kirtlington has over 60 hedgehog highways, helping many hedgehogs move around in safety. A great way to start is to make a neighbourhood plan, which are usually drawn up in consultation with the local community.

Posters and invitations can be used to inform people and our slideshow will help explain why the plan is important. Our top tips leaflets are a great size to post through people’s letterboxes, and we can post hard copies of these out to you as well.
