children’s arts charity which gave musical performance opportunities to over
62,000 children and young people across the North of England and the South West

However, it was during early August 2017 when we saw our
love of wildlife and cats come close together. A pair of hedgehogs decided to have a
family in our garden. We saw the two of them, together, on a couple of occasions
when suddenly, we began to see a routine! The female, who we called Hope, would
walk slowly around the perimeter of the garden often collecting leaves. She came
very close to the house and often stopped for a 'chat' with Milo, one of our
cats. There was no fear from either of them; it almost seemed 'expected'. It was a super sight and we are so glad to have been able to photograph
them. We share this now with wonderful news. Two beautiful hoglets were born
and they all live happily ever after!!
awaits you from Norma, George and our extended
family, as you visit
