This whole post is a test of your anagram skills. Put what you have learned into practice and see if you can decipher what is going on as we pay homage to a very British institution.
We've been celebrating a puzzle-related national institution at work today and I felt I had to bring you into the fun; hence the title of this post.
30 Years ago a cheerful gentleman now sadly passed, welcomed a group of people to a puzzle contest - one that would be held every year thereafter - sometimes more often.
Champions came and champions went, and there were even champions of champions; they call came to the arena to try and win a teapot - I kid you not.
The contest, they say, where you either win a big dictionary or a small dictionary and give or take a few nicknacks - that's about it. Of course all anyone wanted was the teapot.
30 Years later and a new cheerful gentleman greets us warmly every weekday for another game, testing out linguistic and numerical skills, in an effort to find a new champion.

Arm Drool Cavern
Hill Rye Acre
Self Fling Jet
Orderly Sow Beehive
Red Cos Noon
White Red Charity
Thank you and congratulations - here's to another 30 Years of...
