Visitors

This visitor's page is here to allow you to make comments which can be contentious or complimentary; can be about the village, the parish council, the web-site or indeed any other matter of concern or interest to the village and villagers of Caston. How wonderful it is to see people from as far away as Australia and America write in but it's equally fantastic to hear from those still local to Caston and elsewhere in the UK.

Your comments will be very welcome.

Please don't leave without letting us know you were here and, particularly if you are outside of Caston, then the area you come from.  (The last ten comments are shown in full but click on the headlines of the others in order to reveal them.)

Newspapers
Does anyone in Caston have surplus CLEAN newspapers that they do not require anymore. I need CLEAN newspapers urgently for part of the bedding with my rescue guinea pigs. Please e-mail if you can help. Thank you.

1951 walk round caston
My parents were Harry and Gertrude Dennis and I have a brother John . Lived at Cley Cottage Northacre. I left Caston in 1952 married Frederick Leserve from London lived in Surrey had two boys and two girls. I now live in Peterborough . My dad was a farm labourer worked for Childerhouse, he bred greyhounds for racing using stock purchased in Ireland selling to Londoners. My mum bred ducks from a few days old to six weeks old. The ducks were delivered by lorry from the rail at Stow Bedon. As for myself I represented Norfolk for long jump in 1948 the all English sports from Watton school. John my brother married Heather Skipper and now lives in Watton. I remember cycling home with John Barnes from Stow Bedon station. Other memories if interested.

History
Hi just found this site and wondered if anyone remembers my grandparents. They were Ivy and Reginald Goldsmith. I spent my early childhood in the park cottages at Gt Hockham where they lived for many years. I believe that my Gran was born in Stow Bedon but not sure where Reg was born. If anyone remembers them then would love to hear,
Marcus

Caston History
Hi there. My mother, Brenda Beales lived at Rocklands for over eighty years. She has recently gone into residential care at Attleborough. Whilst going through her papers etc. I found a number of items about Caston. Her relatives, the Mann family lived at Caston. One of her cousins Wally was a keen walker and a very good artist. I have a picture which I believe is of Caston Church drawn by Wally. Perhaps the church would like this. I live at Saham Toney so I can bring the items over if anyone is interested in having a look.

Hello Tricia -
I have just read your email on the village website. The Church of The Holy Cross would indeed be very pleased to receive the picture drawn by Wally of Caston Church. You can give me a call and we can arrange to meet at the church or my home. Please give my regards to your Mum - a lovely lady and we always chatted when we met especially when Billy came on his yearly visit.
Kind regards

Caston online
Hi, just found this site whilst trying to find out how the field, on the right going up Caston hill was littered with point 50 shells in the early 60s as we were tractor hoeing. Found the answer in a fascinating article written by John Barnes.
Have read through the comments on here and a name that I recall is Tortice, I worked with a bricklayer named Tortice in the early 60s. He lived on the corner near The Dukes Head pub and I used to cycle as far as Caston and he would give me a ride in his Morris Traveller to Watton.
This is a really good site...well done.

Transport survey
I am trying to reach as many areas of Breckland and Norfolk with this survey from Norfolk County Council regarding transport. It is an opportunity to have a say on future transport plans. Please share among your community and with any others who would benefit.

CASTON VILLAGE FETE
Caston Village Fete Committee would like to thank everyone for their help and support on Saturday, 4th June 2016. We were certainly thankful for the sunshine which appeared for us at lunchtime. The fete was a tremendous success not only financially but more importantly for the great community effort which was made by everyone.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
The profit made at the fete amounted to £3536.55.
An excellent result.
The money will be donated to The Church of The Holy Cross.

Many thanks
