Nursery children in Stretton were delighted to receive a nature-friendly gift from Redrow
Knights Keep development, on Guinevere Avenue, donated a hedgehog home to Stretton Day Nursery, which has been placed in the garden to provide a safe haven for creatures to rest, hibernate or raise their young.
We have pledged to make our homes and gardens hedgehog-friendly, to protect the species and encourage other wildlife to the area.
Craig Watts, Sales Consultant at Redrow Homes East Midlands, said: “The hedgehog is one of Britain’s best loved animals, and there are sadly said to be fewer than one million left.
“Part of our commitment at Redrow is to contribute to thriving communities, and to help provide a better way to live, and so we’re raising awareness about the plight of the hedgehog among children. I’m glad that I was able to donate the hog home as I got to see the children’s excitement when we found the perfect place for it.”
Helen Eaton, Manager at Stretton Day Nursery, said: “We were delighted to receive the hedgehog home - it was welcomed with much enthusiasm by the children, who will no doubt be on the lookout for any new visitors!
“We passionately believe that we should look after our environment and we’d like to thank Redrow Homes East Midlands for its kind donation, and showing the children how to care for hedgehogs.”
