What people say about Hedgehog Club Birthday Parties..

 

“Fabulous birthday party for my daughter’s 7th birthday. Butterfly hunting, leaf and wildflower pattern bags, campfires and marshmallows, den building, bug hunts, games and general running around having fun. Can’t recommend a Hedgehog party enough, 13 children kept fully occupied and the grownups got join in too. In the words of my daughter " I don’t want to go to bed because I don’t want this day to end’

 

"We hired Mandy to hold a hedgehog club birthday party in July (2022) for our six year old son and seven friends, which included two younger siblings. The party activities and location (Hailey Community Wood) were really great and based on our experience, I would highly recommend Mandy’s hedgehog club birthday parties! The activities were just right for my son and his friends (and the two younger ones joined in too), and Mandy kept them all engaged and busy."

Parties are 2 hours long on a Saturday or Sunday (other days by arrangement). You can choose the timings to suit you- either morning or afternoon.

 

  • Are there toilets in the woods?

There are no toilets in the wood and the children will have to ‘wild wee.’ If this an issue you could always bring a porta potty with you.

Please dress for the weather- both children and adults. If it is a winter party please wear warm layers with a waterproof layer on top. If is a summer party please wear lightweight long sleeved top and long trousers to protect from stings and scratches. See the What to Wear section of the website for more details.

  • What about party bags?

Each child will be provided with a cloth bag to decorate as one of the activities. This will be the party bag. You are free to add to these with your own gifts, but no balloons please. Each child will be given a small bag of wildflower seeds as a gift and there will be a small gift and card for the birthday child.
