National Hedgehog Day

Thursday 2nd February was National Hedgehog Day and the team from Mix Mornings were all over it. Appropriately for those of us listening in St Albans, National Hedgehog Day is originally a roman tradition (think ‘Groundhog Day’ but with more swords and sandals). Even more locally, the headquarters of the Hornbeamwood Hedgehog Sanctuary is actually based in Harpenden, where around 100 volunteers help to rehabilitate wild hedgehogs and orphaned baby hoglets that are sick, injured, or underweight.

On Thursday’s Mix Mornings, Iain Pritchard talked to Martin Maylin about the work of the sanctuary and the current fundraising appeal to get a new rescue vehicle.
