Stickers are being fitted to council grass cutting equipment warning workers to watch out for hedgehogs.
West Norfolk council was asdked by a residents if it would sign up to the British Hedgehog Society's Hedgehog Heroes Roll of Honour. This is a list of organisations who are doing what they can to help prevent hedgehogs being injured when grass is cut.
The council said: 'As soon as we heard about this, we were keen to get involved. The British Hedgehog Society sent us some stickers to put on all our strimmers and lawnmowers.'
The stickers remind our grounds maintenance operatives to check areas for hidden hedgehogs, before they cut the grass.
Hedgehogs can be easily injured or killed this way, so it's a simple way to protect them.
