Let's Celebrate Duston
In June 2021 we celebrated Duston in 30 days and brought you a taste of what is on offer.
Our village has so much going on, so many parts to visit and so many activities, clubs and organisations to join. We also have a great selection of pubs, churches, schools and every type of shop and business you could need - and it's all on your doorstep.
But do you know about it all? Do you take time out to visit our parks, sit on one of the many benches, discover the history and heritage that this village is steeped in?
What a fabulous bunch you are!
Many of you have lived your whole life in this village and some are newcomers. Duston has seen massive growth over the past 50 years and often boundaries are blurred with us being so integrated with our neighbours in Upton, Dallington and Sixfields.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting us at our events and for the efforts made right across the village for Duston, Northampton and East Midlands in Bloom competitions.
We also want to encourage you to keep up the amazing support that you give to our shopkeepers, our schools, our businesses, our village and say a BIG THANK YOU to all the teachers, teaching assistants & staff & healthcare workers who nurture, educate and care for us.
Without you all, we wouldn't be Duston! To see what Duston has to offer, please click on the link above
