We drill the importance of safety on Bonfire night to our children; let’s remember the wild creatures too.
If you are having a bonfire, please be sure to build it on the day the fire will actually be lit. This will prevent any wild animals, especially hedgehogs, searching for a comfortable spot to hibernate, coming to a sad end.
When setting off fireworks, check they are not being lit near local bird’s nesting areas: Nesting boxes, trees, hedges etc.
Lastly, as always on bonfire night, keep pets indoors. Bonfire night can be extremely stressful for them.
Have a safe and fun Bonfire night!
