SPALDING Guardian and Lincolnshire Free Press mascot Spike was a surprise visitor to the Scout Hut at Pinchbeck where the Beavers have been beavering away on a project about hedgehogs.

It was also the 25th anniversary of Beavers so Spike was more than happy to help them celebrate the happy day.

The project has included studying the lifestyle of hedgehogs and their preferred habitat.

The Beavers were also warned to take care when gathering material for bonfires because hedgehogs may be hibernating among twigs and leaves.
