Canford Drains save the hedgehog

In recent weeks you may have seen in the press or on the Television the alarming decline of the hedgehog.Surveys by citizen scientists show hedgehog numbers have fallen by about 50% since the turn of the century.

So here at Canford Drains we started to think how we could Help.!!

From time to time hedgehogs can get caught in external drains.This is usually where the gully tops have been lost or broken or just simply moved.

Here’s how we’re going to do our bit for the Hedgehog……

We are giving away free Gully tops, so you can cover your gullies to prevent any hedgehogs falling down.

  • Please walk around your property and check all the drains are covered and no Hedgehogs have fallen down. Please do this on a regular basis as it only takes 2 minutes.

  • Send us a picture of the drain where you have a missing or broken gully top with your name and address.(We need a picture so we can send the correct size to you.)Please email

  • “Like & Share” our Facebook Page to qualify…by clicking

As long as it’s a standard size we will post you a new cover free of charge.

If you feel you may have other problems with you Drains we’ll be more than happy to talk to you and happily discuss any issues you have on 01202 880202
