Poohsticks cancelled

The annual World Poohsticks Championships at Little Wittenham was cancelled today due to fast running water.

Maybe this should be a summer event. There used to be problems when it was held on the first Sunday in January. In 1997 the fun contest was cancelled due to the river being frozen.

I understand that there were still stalls out today for what is now a big occasion. A new date will be announced for September.

It started in 1984.
