All About Hedgehogs

Join our meeting group in store, designed for anyone and everyone! It's a monthly get together with a different topic each time. 

Linda is returning to join us in September! Her previous Hedgehog talk in April was incredibly well received, so she has agreed to come back to talk to our Friends of PGC again in September! 

Linda Squires founded Hedgehog Care and Rehab - Plymouth PL5 in 2008, after learning that the hedgehogs in Britain were on the Red Endangered list. Talks are a wonderful opportunity to share the dos and don'ts that will help hedgehogs have a future in Britain, including the importance of keeping gaps through fences and walls so that the can find mates and successfully forage. This talk will give lots of ideas on hedgehog friendly gardening, the dangers that hedgehogs come across, and how they can be avoided. Also, Linda will teach you how to encourage hedgehogs passing through the garden to return, and where to place hedgehog boxes to increase their successful use by passing and nesting hedgehogs. There will be information on how to recognise a healthy hedgehog, and know that it mustn't be touched or moved. There will also be advice on what is evidence of a sick or injured hedgehog, and how to rescue one and who to contact - including the British Hedgehog Preservation Society on 01584 890801.

Group Information

We are starting a new meeting group for anyone and everyone whether you are a new mum, new to the area, recently widowed, feeling lonely, wanting to try a new hobby or just like to meet new people and have a chat over a cup of tea or coffee we are here to welcome you!

We will arrange a regular meeting time, a talk or demo (no pressure, join in or sit at the back) but hopefully facilitate the meeting of new people and create a relaxed enviroment in which to do it! The centre is often calm and the plants and colour always makes you feel good!

So watch this space or email with 'Friends of PGC' in the title and our Marketing Executive Rebecca will keep you up to date with the plans and email you an invitation to the first meeting.
