Few villages could claim to be the Bagpipe and Hurdy Gurdy capital of the world – but that was exactly Audlem's role on Saturday afternoon. It's long been an established fact that Audlem has a higher per capita population of hurdy gurdy players than London, but bagpipes!

Dave Martin reports: "I attended the annual festivities (as a spectator for a change!) at the Shroppie Fly on Saturday afternoon.
