Getting back to nature

How adorable is this little guy?

Mike is one of our Asset Managers here at saha and he tells us what he and one of saha’s contractors CBE Building and Maintenance Services have been getting up to.

“Due to the recent decline in Hedgehog population from 4 million to under 1 million, I decided to introduce feeding stations and homes in my garden to help out if I could. After several weeks we were joined by several visitors over spring culminating in roughly 8 over the summer. Since then I’ve taken in 2 rescue Hedgehogs from the local vet Norman (the happy chap in the photo) and Sid (he’s camera shy).

Norman now lives in a house in my garden and Sid is a wanderer and returns every now and then for something to eat.

Due to the COVID lock down restrictions I was trying to think of ways to take peoples’ minds off being shut indoors, especially those with children, when I asked one of saha’s maintenance contractors – CBE Building and Maintenance Services if they would be able to assist in providing Hedgehog Houses from left over materials from sites, they replied with several professionally made homes (Posh Detached) which were distributed to saha services including Abbott Lodge and Discovery House for resident’s to enjoy.”
