Join us for a virtual Duston Fun Day 2020

Like many event organisers this summer we were so sad not to be able to bring your our annual Duston Fun Day.

We had such a great line up of groups, organisations, activities, entertainment and food stalls signed up to bring you a day out for all the family to enjoy.

Our popular crafts tent was to be jam packed full with lovely traders selling hand crafted and artisan goods for you to peruse and purchase.

These people have been badly affected by the lockdown, seeing their entire summer calendar cancelled. They have missed out on the opportunity to promote their businesses, sell their goods, attract new members to their clubs and raise money for charity so we would love you to help us help them.

Without our amazing stallholders, we would not be able to organise such a fantastic event year on year. So, as a thank you to each and every one, we will be featuring below all the lovely people that were booked to attend.

We have provided links to their websites and FB pages, where possible, or their contact details for you to find out more. Please send them some virtual love and have a look at their social media page/website. A simple like, follow or share on Facebook will show your support. Find out what they do, join their club or organisation, do some online shopping.

A lot of these people are trying to keep their businesses on track and have adapted to the situation in difficult times, offering great coffee, pizza, cakes and takeaway meals right here in Duston.

Please support local, we are all in it together

Thank you!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟TALLEST SUNFLOWER COMPETITION JUDGING WEEK 20 - 24 JULY 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Well, it seems such a long time since you got in touch asking for a sunflower seed to grow at home.
We hope you are all well and that your sunflowers are growing nicely.

We would like to thank you all for sending in pictures of your progress along the way. It has been really lovely to see everyone getting involved

To be in with a chance of winning a £20 Dobbies Gardening Voucher, we ask that you do the following;

1. Take a picture of your sunflower, using a tape measure to show us how tall it has grown. If it is in a pot, please take the measurement from soil level and NOT from the base of the pot.

2. Send the picture to events@duston.pc.gov.uk with your name and address that you registered your seed with.

3. The winner will be the entrant with the tallest sunflower and will be notified by email week commencing Monday 27th July 2020.

4. In the event of a tie, entrants names will be drawn from a hat.

Once again, we would like to thank you all for participating in the initiative during the lockdown period. We hope you have enjoyed taking part.
