Current World Worm Charming champion, Welshman, Dave Ashman of Newport, met recently with members of the World Alternative Games committee to pledge his support for the event.
The World Worm Championships have taken place since 1980 and boast a World Record of 567 worms collected from a 3m square in 30 minutes (2009).
The Worm Charming event was first devised by Mr John Bailey who was the deputy headmaster of Willaston County Primary School, Nantwich, Cheshire from 1961 to 1983.
It is governed by the IFCWAP (International Federation of Charming Worms and Allied Pastimes) and these rules will be adopted by the World Alternative Games and include rule 18 which states that 'Worms will be released back to site only after the birds have gone to evening roost'.
Rules are available in over thirty different languages and the organisers are always interested in adding to this total. Click here for further rules.
