Hedgehog table d’hôte

A couple of years ago we had a visiting hedgehog in our garden and in a fit of enthusiasm I purchased a stock of hedgehog food with the inevitable consequence that the hog disappeared.

Sue and I would be deighted to make this food available, free of charge, to any reader who has visiting hogs. Contact me on 73667.
