MUSIC The IW may be about 10,000 miles away from Australia but a group of musicians have brought a piece of Antipodean culture to Newport.

The IW Didgeridoo Club has been formed by experienced didgeridoo performer and maker, Joe Caudwell, and meets on the second Monday of every month at the Unitarian Hall, High Street, at 7.30pm.

Last month, the group took part in Stand Up for the Burrup, an international campaign to protect the Burrup Peninsula, in Western Australia, site of the world’s oldest outdoor rock carvings. There are fears the site is to be exploited for natural resources.

Along with didgeridoo players around the globe, IW didgeridoo players met together as a show of solidarity.
