Children from Waverley Primary and Hexthorpe Primary released thousands of elvers into Sprotbrough Flash yesterday on a glorious sunny morning. Each child had the opportunity to release around 100 in to the water, most choosing to let the eels run through their hands! After hand cleaning, they all had a chance to try smoked eel provided by Severn & Wye Smokery who run this brilliant project.

The children have learned about the eel and it’s amazing life cycle and also the role that the Smokery plays in sustaining the eel population by using farmed instead of wild eel.Smoked eelP1000669
