The present drought conditions are proving very difficult for hedgehogs and a number have been seen out late at night looking for water. We are asking members of the public to put out bowls of water for hedgehogs. Food can also be provided, cat biscuits are popular. Do not give milk or bread as these make hedgehogs sick.

Please see details here on the City of York Council website.

Support for individuals who are isolating

If you are self-isolating, either because you are vulnerable or because you are infected with coronavirus, you should not leave the house. In order to get essential supplies such as food, you should try to order online. However, some supermarkets that are busy may not be offering delivery slots. However, supermarkets are not the only source of food deliveries and some local shops are now offering this service and we should all try to support them.

If you have family or friends in the area, you could ask them to help.
