Dear The Verney Family

I would like to personally thank you for your recent actions in rescuing a family of hedgehogs from being saved from your garden waste.

Given that hedgehogs are now endangered, being able to act upon them being found by fitting a ’hedgehog house’ and ensuring that they are settled in a safe place is a wonderful act of initiative.

Thank you for bringing it to the attention of others to check bags of waste and bonfires for animals.

Yours sincerely
Elizabeth O’Keeffe
Mayor of Newbury
