Hampton, Our Mascot

Message from Hampton

Hello, my name is Hampton and I am an 8ft Hedgehog who could not properly hibernate this year as I had to move home.


For the last decade I have been living with Freda Hughes and been a mascot for Littlehampton Carnival. Then in December 2016 I had my last appearance with her at the Carnival fund raising event on the 10th December 2016. Since then I have been adopted by Chris Allen and the Edwin James Festival Choir. They made me appear at their two Christmas Concerts and I went off to hibernate. It has been hard getting used to a new family although I do know Stuart Capelin who sings with the Choir as he was also part of the Carnival committee. I am told that they are a very friendly bunch and they apparently sing a lot.


So far in 2018, I am having a great time. After being in the Pancake races in February, I went to see the Kiddy Winks at River Beach Schools for their fantastic event in June. They even got me in the running event with the other mascots! Early in July, I had a fantastic time with my friends at St Barnabus Hospice shop in Wick, enjoying a dish of water and special Hedgehog cakes at their fundraising Tea Party. I have also appeared at the "Mayor's Party in the Park" on 15th July where the Littlehampton Mayor was raising funds for the Arun Youth Projects.  Everyone had a great day, and I made a new friend "Monty the Mewsbrook Mallard" who lives with the Friends of Mewsbrook Park. On 21st July, I made an appearance at Jamies Wish Family Fun Day and enjoyed all the fun activities that were there.


It is the Choirs intention that I have to be available for parties and celebrity event openings. If anyone would like a loveable cuddly hedgehog to come to their events, please get in touch.


Ps. I am housetrained and only ask to be fed, watered and paid a sum for my celebrity appearance.

Soothes the mind and gives it rest,

Heals the heart and makes it whole,

Flows from Heaven to the soul."
