Spiky guests will be given a better home thanks to the hard work of a wildlife group.
Eco@Oaken will spend a day planting a new hedge and flowering meadows at Oaken Grove Park for hedgehogs and visitors to enjoy and are calling for help.
A community conservation day will take place tomorrow between 10am-12.30pm and volunteers are asked to bring wellies, gloves and a spade or trowel.
Founder of the group Rachel Cook said: "It was upsetting to find several dead hedgehogs last year which gave me the idea.
"But to really make a difference we need local residents, young and old, to dig deep and help with the planting on Sunday."
Rachel added that the borough is in danger of losing its hedgehog population and projects such as this help to ensure their habitats are safely maintained.
