Rec Swimming Pool

Such a massive success story .
At the begining of last year on a litter pick we met Jon the #parkranger for Stratford upon Avon recreational grounds. He admitted the summer before many hedgehogs had fallen into the paddling pool, a lot dying in the process. The girls measured up and asked the lovely older gentlemen at the Mens Shed Stratford upon Avonto make them a ramp. Jon who works alongsideStratford upon Avon District Council puts the ramp in every evening and removes it everyday . He has had no hedgehog casualties . 
We have picked up lots of hedgehogs from that area with lots of ailments , abandoned hoglets, poorly adults, a broken leg , trapped in netting and dehydration from becoming trapped in a shed but none from the pool.
All of these were released back to the area
