Bridport has been declared Britain’s first Hedgehog Town by the Dorset Mammal Group. To celebrate, Bridport’s first Hedgehog Day will take place on Easter Saturday, April 19, from 10am to 3pm in Bridport Community Orchard and St Mary’s Church Hall.

There will be stalls, food, music, information, storytelling, shadow puppets, activities for children and a raffle. Entry will be free.

Making Bridport Britain’s first Hedgehog Town is an initiative by the Dorset Mammal Group to encourage people to make their gardens more hedgehog friendly and to aid research on the local hedgehogs population.

Rose Luckman, Bridport hedgehog co-ordinator said: “We want to educate the public about hedgehogs and how we can help them survive.”
