Sadly, the UK’s favourite spiky little mammal is in serious decline. While it is difficult to accurately monitor hedgehog numbers, The Woodland Trust believes that numbers could have decreased by over half in rural areas and a third in urban areas since 2000.
In order to try to encourage and protect hedgehogs in our local area, Emersons Green Town Council has a limited supply of hedgehog houses to distribute to residents of the Emersons Green ward area to host in their gardens. If you would like to apply for one of the hedgehog houses, please complete the application form:
Subject to eligibility criteria, hedgehog houses will be allocated by random draw. The closing date for applications is Friday 10 September 2021.
