UPDATE: We will now hold the 30th anniversary championships on SUNDAY 13TH OCTOBER 2013. We look forward to seeing you there!!!!!
We were very sorry to announce that we had to cancel the World Pooh Sticks Championships that we had hoped to hold on Sunday 24th March.
If we had just had a little rain on the day then we would have still played and we would have splashed around in wellington boots and dropped our coloured sticks over the bridges, however we had so much rain in February and March that the river was too high and fast to have our safety boats on the river.
Thank you to everyone who has shown so much interest in Britain's Favourite Quirky Event (as voted for by the readers of Countryfile Magazine) and thank you in particular to all the volunteers who were ready to give up their March weekend to help out.
