We have had some great publicity over the last few years.
Picture above: Matt Baker from The One Show on 24th April 2012 - claiming that he was the World Champion?
Our club President, Lesley, is already way ahead of us all and she got us a mention on the Chris Evans Radio Two show on Thursday 6th December 2012. We were the 4th in the Top Ten Tenuous for 'championing'.
Our first mention for this year was on the Chris Evans Radio Two Breakfast Show on 9th January when Chris read out Lesley's email about how this would be special for her. She got married in the summer, but she listed Pooh Sticks above that!
And we appear to now have an annual spot on the Malcolm Boyden show on BBC Radio Oxford on the anniversary of the birth of A A Milne - 18th January. Karen did a short interview in the studio explaining the history of Pooh Sticks and the championships.
23rd March: Karen was interviewed by Anne Diamond on BBBC Radio Berkshire.
24th April: the winner of the individual championships, Aiden Eltham, appeared with his father on The One Show with Matt Baker and Alex Jones!!
The highlight of summer 2012 (after the Olympics and Paralympics of course) was our award from the BBC Countryfile magazine for being Britain's favourite quirky event. Read more about the award.
