Welcome to Castle Green WI

Our current programme can be seen by clicking here .

From October 2021 we have been meeting on the 2nd Friday of each month at the newly refurbished Lads’ Club, Rectory Lane, CT21 4PZ  in Saltwood. Our meetings generally start at 10 am and finish by 12 noon. We begin with the President’s welcome, news from EKF and NFWI, updates about our activities and sub groups along with our Treasurer’s report. After the business part of the meeting we have plenty of time for coffee, cake and all important chat before settling down to listen to our speaker of the month or running one of our activities. Both talks and activities are varied and reflect the wide interests of our members. Each month we also run a very popular raffle. In addition we have a well supplied sales table selling a selection of crafts, plants and books etc.

We try to provide activities for everyone and are always open to new suggestions. We  run several sub groups like the Knit and natter, Patchwork, Walking and Book groups, as well as a Lunch Club. In August we enjoy fish, chips and Prosecco on the beach and hold a very popular annual Christmas lunch in December. Our Summer outing last year was a visit to Walmer Castle and Gardens followed by a delicious cream tea. Do have a look at our ‘what we do’ pages for details of all our activities.

Our members can also attend East Kent Federation events such as the Spring  Day and Craft day. These events are advertised in the East Kent News magazine which is sent out monthly directly from EKF to all members via email. Our members also receive, through the post, 8 copies per annum of WI Life magazine from the NFWI and are able to log into the member’s only part of their website known as MYWI. 

At present we have around 60 members who are a very sociable, welcoming and friendly bunch. Even during the pandemic we gained 2 new members and we are still open to anyone wishing to join us. At any one meeting around 40 to 50 members will be present to meet old friends and make new ones.

Please feel free to come along to one of our monthly meetings as our guest to see if you would like to join us.
