Description

Who doesn’t love the stories of Winnie the Pooh? This wonderful book teaches kids all around the world such values as friendship and kindness. It also invented the Pooh Sticks game, which today has its own world championship. The rules are very simple. Teams or individuals drop differently coloured sticks from a bridge on the upstream of a river and wait for them to appear on the other side of the bridge. Whoever's stick appears first wins the game. Little Wittenham Bridge attracts over 1,500 visitors each year. It might seem like a tiny event, however participants come not only from nearby villages, but from all over England and even from Japan, the United States, Australia and Kenya! Attend the championship this year and remember what it was like to be a child.
