Duston Festive Windows 2020

DUSTON FESTIVE WINDOWS

1st 25th DECEMBER 2020

We have all had enough of this year so let's go out on a high. Please join us for Festive Fun throughout December. We have a few ideas for you to get involved with and enjoy and it is most definitely a case of the more the merrier!

More info on our main initiatives below

Duston Festive Windows

  • We will be lighting up the DPC Christmas Tree on the bank at St Luke's Centre on 1st December . As well as inviting over 100 shops and businesses across Duston to decorate their windows, this year we would also love as many residents as possible to join in the fun. Let's get Duston sparkling with joy, it's great to see that some of you have already made a start!
  • If you want to be a part of our Window Wonderland you can send us photos of your decorated house or neighbourhood. This will definitely make our daily exercise a whole lot more interesting; great fun for all the family. Email your pictures and the name of your street so that we can feature you on our Facebook page and add you to the trail - events@duston-pc.gov.uk

Please keep yourselves safe by adhering to the latest government guidelines and ensure that all photos sent have the relevant permissions.

Elf Day 2020

Release your inner elf and join us to raise much needed funds for the Alzheimer's Society. On Friday 4th December we hope you will dress up in your best stripey tights or festive costume and go about your business as normal - whether that be going to work or cleaning the car, popping out for essential groceries or chilling at home.

We want to see your snapshots, action shots, photobombs... encourage people to make a donation to this worthy cause and send us photos if you have organised a safe fundraising activity.

We are inviting you all to join in the fun to raise smiles across the village.

We would also like to raise some money so we have set up a Just Giving page.

If you can donate please click here to do so

WE HOPE YOU CAN JOIN US!
