An evening to raise awareness and help reverse the decline of hedgehogs, bees and pollinating insects across the Parish was held on 23 June at the Civic Centre, Keighley.
The Town Council, via its Community Development Committee, organised the event which saw a full house of eager listeners. Speakers from Hedgehogs R Us, the Bee Together Project and People’s Planters Project gave informative and interesting talks about how action can be taken through practical tips and information.
People from across the town attended and were given free Hedgehog Highway surrounds, pollinating plants and information leaflets.
Linda Cook from Hedgehogs R Ussaid ‘It was an absolute pleasure to chat to so many eager listeners and great to engage with a council who are dedicated to making a difference to the survival of hedgehogs. Linda Cook, Hedgehogs R Us’
The Council has 30 Hedgehog Highway surrounds to give away on a first come, first served basis. One per household can be collected at the Downstairs Project, Civic Centre, Keighley on Thursdays and Fridays 11am-2pm.
