Who we are
My name is Mandy Warwick.
I am the founder of The Hedgehog Club. After 30 years as a primary school teacher I trained as a Forest school leader. While running sessions for little ones at Hill End I could see the positive effect being outdoors in nature had on children, so I decided to set up The Hedgehog Club.

What do parents say?
The structure of the sessions is perfect for young children: a welcome for the group, free time to explore with a range of suggested activities which are different each week, and the infamous camp fire and snacks. And who could forget the delicious Forest School cookies for both the children and adults!
The children are encouraged to use new equipment safely and to explore nature in a responsible manner.
Many happy memories and mud photos have been taken at Hedgehog Club-
