About us

The Castonettes (Caston WI), under the guidance of our current president Wendy Edwards, is a lively interesting group of local women not only from Caston but from the surrounding villages.   We have a stimulating and varied calendar of events which include guest speakers, outings and the ever popular Summer and Christmas socials.

We always have a refreshment break in each meeting in order for members to chat and get to know one another.   If that’s not enough we also have a darts team and 2 bowling teams that compete in a league against other WI groups.

Okay, so yes we do sing Jerusalem or God Save the Queen at the end of our meetings which many of us enjoy singing in a rousing fashion and which can be heard by anyone passing the village hall!  It sends us off home with a happy feeling and in todays rushed world that’s no bad thing.

We’re always keen to welcome new members to our existing group and you’re invited to join us.   If you’re uncertain whether it’s for you or not, speak with Lynne Welbelove 01953 483640 or come along on the night – we’ll make you very welcome and you’ll soon get to know everyone.
