'Aston on Trent is a rural village approximately seven miles to the south west of Derby City. It has around 1800 residents and is known for its energetic and socially dynamic approach to life. Over thirty social, learning and recreational groups prosper, providing activities and events for all ages from the very young to the young at heart ...

'Aston is rich in heritage but until recently had no comprehensive record of its history or any organised collection of documents, photos or other archive material. There was a concern that many elderly residents in particular had no facilities to pass on a wealth of interesting stories of times past for future generations. In September 2004 a small group of interested villagers met to set up a formally constituted Local History Group. The principal aim was (and continues to be) to provide, maintain and develop a comprehensive history of Aston using a variety of formats, easily accessible to all and involving as many members of the community - young and old - as possible.

'To date, our Group is one of the fastest growing organisations in the village ...'
