Pickles pulls it off.
The story of the World Cup being stolen from the Methodist Hall in Westminster on the eve of the 1966 tournament, the ransom demands and the subsequent discovery of the trophy by Pickles the canine hero has all become the stuff of legend. Today the very wonderful South Norwood Tourist Board launched it's Picklesfest and I was privileged to attend the opening ceremony along with a number of dignitaries from the world of politics and the arts. Marvellous.
