We have working with Shropshire Wildlife Trust to promote a local hedgehog survey.

The idea is to see where hedgehogs are still active and from that to map out a hedgehog garden network.

i.e determining which garden boundaries are hedgehog friendly and which are not.

We will provide more information on this soon.

We are also encouraging all ages to enter poetry as part of our 'Poets Run Wild' promotion.

Email us with your best entries, for us to publish online.
