Puzzle-lovers can come and enjoy a jigsaw themed charity get together at a village hall in St Albans.

There will be about one hundred jigsaws for sale at the Jigsaw and Craft Fayre, which is in aid of the London Colney Hedgehog Rescue - a rehabilitation centre for sick and injured hedgehogs.

It is being held at Sandridge Village Hall on October 13, from 10am to 1pm. Organiser Vera Tufnell said: “Come and enjoy an interesting morning and have a chat with friends over tea and coffee.”

There will be refreshments available, as well as a raffle with prizes including a family ticket to Woburn Safari Park, vouchers for The Rex cinema, a piece of work by local artist Clive Patterson, and a meal for two at Shenley’s Café In The Orchard.

Vera’s daughter Lorna added: “It’s a very good cause because hedgehogs are declining and we are still lucky to have a small population of them in St Albans. It would be a massive shame to lose this and never see them again.”

The Jigsaw and Craft Fayre has been held about seven times over the last 12 years.
