Hedgehogs have been getting a helping hand from children at a Clevedon primary school.
St John’s Primary School, in Fosseway, is taking part in a South West-wide initiative to help the animals.
Pupils have been creating hedgehog buggys out of shoe boxes, cardboard and elastic bands while they have also made posters to raise awareness of hedgehog protection.
Headteacher Ian Doswell said: “The approach to teamwork has been fantastic.
“The children have supported each other to do their very best work which is just one of the reasons we embrace opportunities such as this to bring the curriculum to life.”

The regional initiative encourages families leave small gaps in garden fences and hedges to allow hedgehogs to move around freely.
