Duston Remembers 2022


Our wonderful Poppy cascade will be on display again this year. Situated on the bank at St Luke's Centre, it will be on display from 1st to the 14th November and floodlit at night.

We will also have poppies on the lamp posts along the Main Road

Help Duston remember by dedicating a poppy to add to our display; If you wish you can remember a loved one lost in the war e.g. 'Cyril Bateman 1920 - 1944' or just make a poppy.

It's easy to get involved; follow the instructions to create a poppy on a stick and drop it off to us along with the dedication you would like on the label by FRIDAY 21ST OCTOBER please.

We will print and laminate the names and attach them to your poppy.

Poppies should be dropped off at the collection point in the lobby of Duston Community Centre, Pendle Road. Duston, NN5 6DT

A Remembrance service will take place at the following churches on Sunday 13th November;

St Luke's Church, Church Way, Main Rd, Duston, NN5 6JB 10am

Duston United Reformed Church, 56A Main Rd, Duston, NN5 6JF 10.30am
