Pooh Sticks postponed

The annual World Pooh Sticks Championships near Abingdon have been postponed because too much rain means the River Thames is running too fast.

Hundreds of people were expected to turn up to the event at Little Wittenham on Sunday 28 March 2010, but the Environment Agency have told the organisers they can't hold it.

The people behind the 26th Championships are now hoping to reschedule them for September or October.

The game's inspired by the one played in the Winnie the Pooh stories by A. A. Milne.  Sticks are dropped into the River from a bridge, and then participants move to the other side of the bridge to see which is the first to emerge.
