Pooh Sticks

I nearly overlooked another British institution which took place today. Luckily that office boy who looks after the BBC website when most staff take their weekend break didn't forget it (title link). Saffron Sollitt, a nine-year-old girl from Oxfordshire, won the individual prize in the 2011 World Pooh Sticks Championships, beating 500 other entrants. Well done, Saffron. Just for you, here's Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin playing Pooh Sticks with Piglet watching, illustrated brilliantly by E.H. Shepard.
