Whilst out on your daily exercise, why not see how many of our eggs you can spot?
There will be 20 of them at locations all across the village. Each egg will have a location number and a fascinating fact about the area.
We have tried to spread the eggs across different parts of Duston and they are not all on a main road. Therefore, we don't anticipate that you will complete the whole trail in one go.
We suggest that you may wish to plan your walks to visit different parts of the village and you can solve our clues to help you identify where the locations are.
Simply enjoy learning about our village as you go or, for a chance to win a super Easter hamper, send us your list of all 20 locations and the first correct entry drawn at random will win. Entries no later than 11th April, please.
Download, complete and return the entry form to us via email firstname.lastname@example.org, post or drop in our letterbox at Duston Community Centre.
You don't have to use our official entry form but please do list the 20 locations as printed on the posters and remember to include your contact details.
We are indebted to the following members of Duston Local History Society for helping with the historical facts;
A very big THANK YOU to Kathy Perkins, David Carter, Mark Vincent, Margaret Edwards and Barbara Luke
And thanks to you for getting involved - we hope you and your families enjoy
