In the light of the stringent restrictions on movements and social interactions that have, necessarily, been imposed by the government and that are likely to be in place for some considerable time, Casterton WI has, sadly, needed to take the decision to cancel meetings for the foreseeable future.

CWFWI  events and the Group Meeting are also cancelled.

Members will be kept informed of developments by email and this blog will be updated as necessary.

Casterton hosted the Lune Valley Group meeting.

Zoe Dawes took us on a fascinating food journey round the world.

A delicious buffet made by Casterton WI members followed.

Casterton was delighted to win the competition - thanks go to Ann for producing such a wonderful collage about Australia.

Thirty members and  guests enjoyed a wonderful evening on Wednesday 13th March to celebrate the centenary of Casterton WI.

Olive Clarke (Hon President),  Karen Hanks (Chairman) and Margaret Hodgins (Vice Chairman) of Cumbria-Westmorland Federation were extremely welcome.

We were also delighted to welcome back three Past Presidents who are no longer members.

After a delicious meal, we were entertained by the Amble Singers who are an excellent a cappella group of ladies from Ambleside.

Honoured guests and presidents

Trip to London

Gill and Jane enjoyed a long weekend in London.

We had a wonderful coach ride to see the sights, 'did' the Tour of London and had an excellent tour round the Houses of Parliament at a very significant moment in the Brexit negotiations.
