Hedgepig Gin Liqueurs lends a helping hand to Hedgehogs
during National Hedgehog Awareness Week
5-11 May 20-19

Celebrate National Hedgehog Awareness Week with Hedgepig’s new Zesty Elderflower Gin liqueur. Launched this month just in time for the Elderflower season this delicious gin liqueur is also helping the plight of the Hedgehog. For every Hedgepig bottle sold, 50 p will be donated to the British Hedgehog Preservation Society who are raising a series of events across the UK next week to highlight the problem facing hedgehogs.

Hedgepig was created by the team behind Pinkster gin and is made using fruit grown in local orchards or foraged, often on hands and knees, from the East Anglian Hedgerows. The liqueurs accompany cheese and desserts especially well. Sugar levels are lower than many other fruit gin liqueurs whilst, the ABV’s are higher.

Zesty Elderflower is best served cold with pudding or as a cocktail topped up with Prosecco. This luscious liqueur is made from home grown and local wild elderflower and has subtle citrus notes and a delicate flavor. It joins the three other flavours, Cambridge Gage, Glorious Gooseberry and Wild Bullace and Quince.

A few fascinating facts about the Hedgehog:
Adult hedeghogs have between 3000 and 5000 spikes
They have been on earth for more than 15 million years, walking with sabre toothed tigers and mammoths
Hedgehogs are really good swimmers but struggle to get out of steep slippery edged ponds and pools
Hedgehogs have tails
Hedgehog numbers have fallen by over half in the last two decades so Hedgepig are thrilled to be supporting the unsung heroes of our countryside.

All the Hedgepig liqueurs are available to purchase online from

Summer Lovin’: Choosing garden furniture to help you fall in love with your outdoor space

Now that summer is just around the corner, dreams of relaxing in the back garden and al fresco socialising in the sunshine are starting to become a reality…But, before you start making plans and inviting friends round, make sure your outdoor space hits the right spot with some help from

Simon Glanville, managing director at, explains: “As the weather gets warmer you probably want to start planning how you’re going to use your outdoor space this year. However, if your garden furniture has been packed away for months it might not be looking its best!

“Now that we’re in the throws of Spring, it’s a great excuse to invest in some statement outdoor living pieces to give your garden a refresh. At we have something for everyone, whether you’re wanting to create a space fit for the dream garden gathering, a peaceful paradise to enjoy at the end of the day or just somewhere that all the family can enjoy a barbeque together.”

Simon comments: “Mindfulness is huge at the moment, but for most of us heading to a spa every weekend to wind down isn’t realistic. Instead, why not transform your garden into a relaxing retreat where you can practice mindfulness in the sunshine, or simply just take some well-deserved time out?
Creating your relaxing retreat…

Road safety tips from Phillip Kekana to become a #BeRoadSafe warrior

· Phillip Kekana shares road safety tips to help motorists become #BeRoadSafe heroes and assist in reducing accidents on our national roads.

· Phillip Kekana encourages the road users to become #BeRoadSafe heroes by sharing stories of what happened to them so more people can see the devasting impact of road traffic incidents.

· Share your #BeRoadSafe Safie and travel tips to energize your community to change the way they drive and make our roads safe again.

24 April 2019 |– Hitting the road again? Remember to be prepared for anything – a punctured tyre could stop you from reaching your destination just in time to light the fire and roast some marshmallows on the barbeque. Plan your rest stops before you start your energetic journey by being safe, staying ‘woke’ and being aware of other motorists, pedestrians and cyclists on the road.

Phillip Kekana, the Puma Energy Road Safety Ambassador, believes “That road safety doesn’t just deserve seasonal attention, but it should be a daily concern, as the average motorist spends roughly 43 minutes a day in traffic and drives roughly 163 hours per year. It should make us all experts on the road because we spend so much time driving.”

Easter road accidents and deaths dropped by 41%, but we still have a great deal of work to do before our roads are safe for everyone. Isn’t about time we focus on road safety instead of becoming another statistic? Road safety is a national crisis. Puma Energy and Phillip Kekana hope to educate the nation to reduce the figures and save more lives. The #BeRoadSafe challenge encourages local leaders to share their #BeRoadSafe Safies (a photo of a person showing how they promote safe driving) to promote road safety all year round. These images will serve as a reminder to other motorists and pedestrians so they too can change bad driving behaviour to make a positive impact on our roads.

“I am calling on all motorists to pledge to become a #BeRoadSafe hero. I want them to speak up and share their ideas so together we can make our roads safe again for the kids. We need the kids to lead and remind their Mommy’s and Daddy’s to put down their phones and drive safely without distractions,” exclaims, Phillip Kekana.

The Puma Energy #BeRoadSafe Safie challenge hopes to lower road traffic incidents and inspire the next generation of road safety heroes. To help road users become even more road safe, Phillip Kekana recommends these #BeRoadSafe tips that you can pass onto our future leaders and new drivers:

Road Safety is simple as A, B, C. Always Be Careful! Use one of the best safety tools you have, your voice. Speak up when you see something dangerous in the road or feel unsafe in the car.
Protect our kids, drive carefully. Buckle up before you start your journey. Seat belts save about 15,000 lives a year.
You snooze, you lose. Driving drowsy isn’t worth the risk. Take rests on long journeys. Stop at least every two hours while driving long distances. This will give you time to go to the bathroom and stretch your legs before you hit the road again.
Stay alert; there are distracted drivers all around you. If the driver is using their cellphone while driving remind them that it slows reaction time by 37%. Plus, distracted driving is the main cause of accidents around the world.
Never take selfies while driving. Taking a selfie while driving could distract a driver for up to 14 seconds, that’s the length of 5 soccer fields.
Know the rules of the road and your road signals. Green: means “Go.” Red: means “Stop.” Amber: means “Slow Down.”
Always walk on the sidewalks or the pathways along the road. Try to use a bridge instead of crossing highways.

Lead by example and be the change on our public roads. Phillip challenges all road users to become a #BeRoadSafe Hero in their community. Remember to share your Safies with the #BeRoadSafe hashtag so Phillip Kekana can spot you!
