Our New Camera

We are very excited to have been given a night vision camera. Thank you to Caddick Construction for your generous donation. We love looking at the wildlife, in particular the hedgehogs !

Meet Fearne, our latest Hedgehog

We welcomed Fearne to our wonderful grounds where she can roam freely, enjoy our hedgehog sanctuary and pass through into the Heslington East at the uni. She’s a whopping 1038g and was nursed back to health by Fiona at Urchins Hedgehog Care, York.

Lord Deramore’s and our Hedgehogs on Look North!

Wow! Did you catch Year 6 and their feature about their Hedgehog Award project on Look North?

Releasing Isabella

Y6 released Isabella into her hibernaculum in our hedgehog sanctuary. Fiona at Urchins Hedgehog Care, York, and Lisa treated her ailments & looked after this 141g abandoned hog until she reached a healthy release weight.

Hedgehog-Friendly School – Gold Award!

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the gold hedgehog-friendly schools award. With a challenging 60 points needed for gold, we managed a whopping 93 points!

We love doing our bit to help hedgehogs. Congratulations too go to our neighbours, the University of York, who also achieved gold.
