Organisers of the World Pooh Sticks Championships at Day’s Lock in Oxfordshire are looking for a new venue.

The tradition was started in 1984 by the lock keeper but for the past 31 years the Rotary Club has organised the event.

Hundreds of competitors take it in turns to drop sticks off the bridge and race to the other side to see which is winning.

So many cars now arrive that a venue with better parking than an often muddy field near Dorchester-on-Thames is needed.

The Rotary Club says the ideal venue would have one or two bridges over the river, access for the safety boats and space for parking as well the registration and games tents.
