About the Event

Rupert and Amanda Ponsonby invite fellow Cluster members and their family and friends to a Crayfish Lunch at Sarsden Glebe.  Experience Crayfish Bob's special pop-up crayfish boil - sustainably trapped for a better environment.  

The invasive species of Signal Crayfish lives in lakes, rivers and canals throughout the UK and Crayfish Bob is the removal expert leading the fight against them to reduce the havoc they wreak on local wildlife and endangering the native white-clawed crayfish. Crayfish Bob’s proposed solution to bringing the ‘signal’ population down is simply to eat them. He regularly holds crayfish feasts in London, cooking up a boil flavoured with cayenne pepper, paprika, onions, garlic, crayfish, corn, potatoes and spicy sausage.  We actively encourage children to come and try!

When not swaying to Bob's Louisiana band, we will take groups on a guided walk to the Sars Brook, a tributary of the Evenlode, to see some crayfish fishing, and hear about the work the Ponsonbys are doing at Sarsden Glebe.  This will be an excellent chance to informally discuss the types of work we'll be doing in the Evenlode Landscape Recovery project on 'up-catchment' reaches to restore nature, hold water back and create a more resilient farm business.

Please do book tickets at the RSVP button - places are limited!
