A group of ten of us met on the 11th of August for a fascinating visit to Minster Hedgies. It was set up just two years ago when Andrea and Ian Cross found “6 hoglets starving and wandering around our garden”. The rescue centre has since grown rapidly. When we visited 24 hedgehogs were being cared for in the “hedgehog hotel”, where they stay until sufficient weight is gained for them to be returned to the wild.
The rescue centre is self funded and relies on donations plus an army of 19 volunteers to help with feeding. For more information see:
