Duston In Bloom 2018

Following on from their success last year, The Grow Together Allotment will be entering Northampton in Bloom. You can get involved on their designated volunteering days or by contacting Jenny@cypn.org

2017 Winners!

Duston Parish Council will also be entering and you can be a part of it!

This is a great opportunity for everyone to get involved to make where we live even better. Whether that is litter picking, having a community tidy up, showcasing your own front garden or getting involved in one of Duston Parish Council's planting initiatives...it all counts.

We'd love to hear from you, your group, your neighbours...tell everyone you know and we will help you to get involved

We have already got several groups and individuals on board doing a variety of things from making bird boxes and bug houses to knitting poppies for our cascade, which will also count, to painting pebbles for Love on the Rocks, Duston.

The crucial thing is that we can evidence this for our portfolio so do be sure to let us know when you are planning to do something so that we can come and take some pictures

Please contact us directly for more details

Hopping Hill School 16th May

We were delighted that children from year 4 at Hopping Hill School joined us to sow wild flower seeds on the St Luke's Field. This was a great example of community engagement and helped Duston Parish Council kick off our Northampton in Bloom bid.

Special thanks to Mrs Cronin and Mrs Killick for their help and enthusiasm and very well done to all the children who made such a great job of it

Squirrels Childcare 24th May

Children from Squirrels Childcare made a lovely job of the barrel planters at Duston Community Centre. They chose red, white and blue to fit in with the WW1 Centenary theme as part of our bid for Northampton in Bloom 2018.

Thank you to Melissa Swain, Squirrels Childcare owner, and all the children that took part and did such a lovely job

Duston Art Group

Thank you to the wonderful members of Duston Art Group who have been painting nature themed rocks as part of our Northampton in Bloom bid. They had great fun painting them in the spirit of the 'Love on the Rocks Duston' craze that is generating hours of free, outdoor fun for the whole community.

Young people from our Duston Youth Club will hide the rocks around the village during June so you can all have fun looking for them

Caring Kindergartens

The children at Caring Kindergartens made a great job of planting up the bed on St Luke's bank. Thank you to all of them and to Jacqui and Darren for their enthusiasm

Duston Youth Group

Look at this fantastic, super-sized bug habitat made by our young people. The critters around Duston will have a great time!

The Grow Together Allotment

Our lovely volunteers have been working really hard and the allotment is in full bloom!
