I am currently turning my gardens into a hedgehog Paradise and I am also a  hedgehog champion for the hedgehog street website.  I would get my whole street involved and become a hedgehog safety zone.

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

I am currently turning my gardens into a hedgehog Paradise and I am also a  hedgehog champion for the hedgehog street website.  I would love to get my whole street involved and become a wild hedgehog protection zone. I would love to get my neighbors to do the same and the back gardens become a hedgehog highway.  Our houses back on to a brook so it's an ideal place to live for our prickelly friends.  I would like to get a promotional pack together to give to people interested in doing the same in their gardens and turn our area into a hedgehog street.  Our group would do this by the distribution of recyclable information leaflets pointing the community to the hedgehog Street website and also providing pointers of how to help Hedgehog's survive and thrive. We would also provide local groups and business's with free information and pointers about the setting up of their own hedgehog street project.

What we'll deliver:

  • Information sessions on how to support hedgehogs in your community
  • On going support and contact during the setting up and process of the project
  • Free resources to give you practical advice and to access the hedgehog Street website.
  • Provide a celebration event and encourage other groups to do the same.

Why it's a great idea:

Hedgehog habitats are in decline and the future is not too bright for this animal. The peoples trust for endangered species started a petition to make the government aware of it's concern and the response was amazing. The Government is concerned about the decline of the hedgehog. Whilst the reasons for the decline in numbers of this emblematic species are complex, we support efforts to make our gardens more hedgehog friendly and more friendly to wildlife generally and pollinators specifically. To encourage the involvement of local communities the Government recently published advice for homeowners in the form of five simple steps to make gardens more hedgehog friendly. This advice can be accessed at: www.gov.uk/government/news/five-simple-steps-to-transform-gardens-in-to-hedgehog-havens. The Braunstone town hedgehog project will help to further spread this advice and give communities a real base to start their own Flora and fauna projects. Promoting the project will help too

Steps to get it done:

  • February 2020 to have started to print information leaflets for posting
  • To set up the first meeting by Mid March to share the hedgehog project with local people in the Braunstone town.
