Cats Protection will be helpful.  Try Ipswich Cats Protection or Framlingham & Saxmundham (I believe Trimley may well come within F & S post code area). Suffolk Animal Rescue is also very kind.  Sadly the RSPCA are wrapped up in a lot of red tape ... [ more ]

Slimline T
Thank you all for taking the time to reply. Much appreciated. I am currently trying to catch them myself but don't hold out too much hope. If no success after the weekend I shall start calling your suggested mole catchers.

We have them in our garden, husband has been tracking them and has been known to stand over a new mound waiting with a big rock in his hand! Have tried traps, bombs etc.
