I’m the executive councillor for planning policy and open spaces on Cambridge City Council, and last year I was given the honour of sounding the starting horn of the Cambridge half marathon. However, I won’t be able to do that this year, because I’ll be somewhere in the line getting ready to run!  

I’ve chosen to support Cambridge Hedgehogs, a local charity that was formed last year. I got to know the three directors of Cambridge Hedgehogs after the council launched its hedgehog awareness campaign last year, and I was impressed by  their concern for the plight of these wonderful small mammals, and the help they offer to sick or injured hedgehogs.

So, I’ve dug out my running shoes, I’m out pushing myself to get fitter and train to enable me to enjoy the Cambridge Half marathon course.   Please help me help Cambridge Hedgehogs.
