Astons Digital Community Archive (ADCA)
ADCA is an Astons Online initiative to create a digital community archive of village life past and present - involving the Astons' web team and the Astons History Group - and managed by the Astons History Group.
History starts now: Do you have any interesting photos, pictures or ephemera that reflect village life now or in the past? If so you could help us expand the village archive.

ADCA was established in 2014 by the Astons web site web-team, in conjunction with the Astons History Group, to establish a digital collection of village records created and owned by a range of village organisations. It was funded by grants from SODC’s Community Fund scheme, the Astons Village News and Aston Tirrold and Upthorpe Parish Councils.
Its aims are:
· to aid awareness of the range of material that indirectly records life in the villages of Aston Tirrold and Upthorpe, past and present.
· to facilitate better use of such records for community projects.
· to provide access, where appropriate, to records of interest to a wider audience.
· to establish continuity between the paper based systems of the past and the digital processes of the 21st century.
