MANUFACTURERS & STOCKISTS SUPPORTING HEDGEHOG HIGHWAYS

In Summer 2023, the hedgehog conservation charity Hedgehog Street put out a UK-wide call for fencing companies to offer hedgehog friendly products in their range, including fencing with 13cm built-in 'highways' to enable hedgehogs to travel between gardens. As one of their many hedgehog champions, I contacted a number of different companies and was delighted to have inspired Jewson (Stark Building Materials UK) to take action! Since then, they have introduced several new fencing and gravel board products, and gave me the opportunity to exhibit at their 'Jewson Live On Tour' at Birmingham NEC in 2024.
