“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”

It’s fitting Winnie the Pooh said that because he has been exemplifying that very sentiment in an effort to brighten people’s days during the lock-down.

Connah Wagstaff posted on the Cambridge Grapevine that Winnie’s visit had made a huge difference.

At last check, the post had nearly 700 likes.

‘Winnie the Pooh’ is Challenge Rockgas Cambridge logistics manager Gary Brindle, who was spotted in his attire delivering LPG cylinders in Matamata and Cambridge.

“I like to try to bring a little bit of happiness when I can,” he explained.

Challenge Rockgas Cambridge owner David Wilkinson said he “just cracked up,” when he spotted Pooh.

“I’m proud of him.”
