Sadly this event is not happening in 2019, but why not play Pooh Sticks wherever you are, in celebration of the simple game created by A A Milne in the book The House at Pooh Corner?

All you need is a stick*, a stream or a river, and a bridge**. Everyone drops their stick at the same time from the up-river side of the bridge. Rush across to the other side of the bridge and see who’s stick comes out first.

* please collect your sticks responsibly, using ones that are already on the ground – don’t hurt or damage trees¬†

** ideally you’ll play this game on a non-road bridge – and if not, have responsible adults helping children to cross roads safely
