Northumbrian Hedgehog Rescue 

A request for more newspapers please!

Many thanks to those who donated newspapers before!

Please can we have any newspapers that you no longer want!

At the Hedgehog Rescue Centre in Longframlington we use shredded newspaper as bedding for the injured, sick and very small hedgehogs that are brought in to us.

At this time of the year the hedgehogs require more bedding to keep warm and we are running short of newspapers again!

If you or anyone you know has newspapers (no magazines please!) 

please leave them in the porch in a plastic bag at: 5, Church View 

or text me on 0772 4091586 and I will come and collect them.

With very many thanks,

Jan Bryce

Garden waste collection day

The collection day for the garden waste (brown) bin has changed for this year. For Longhorsley it is now generally on the Wednesday, the day before the normal rubbish bin is collected. 

When there is a bank holiday you should check on the  Northumberland County Council website, as collection days might change.

The next Longhorsley collection dates for the garden waste bin are Wednesday 29th March and Thursday 13th April (due to the Easter holiday).
