There’s been reports of hedgehog casualties on local roads lately.

Please drive carefully and keep an eye out for hedgehogs and other wildlife crossing the road. Also, check for sheltering hedgehogs when clearing up in the garden or having bonfires.

Hedgehogs are now classed as “threatened with extinction” in the UK, and need our help. Also, there are increasing incidents of items such as face masks, wipes and gloves being discarded on paths and roads. This can be hazardous to people as a potential source of infection and to animals who can either become entangled in face masks or eat these items. 

Please dispose of these items safely in your waste bins.

Many thanks!
