Groundwork Derby & Derbyshire were approached by Aston Parish Council to liaise with the youth of the village, to find out which youth shelter they preferred. The choice of all young people who were asked was overwhelmingly The Pod.
Aston Parish Council has agreed to purchase The Pod youth shelter. The Pod will be located on the playing fields, on the left hand side as you go through the main gate.
The environmentally friendly Youth Shelter will be fitted with lighting, which is powered by a set of crank handles connected to a generator and has an added feature that allows its users to play music through Bluetooth connectivity through speakers inside The Pod. The lights are controlled by a sensor that automatically turns on as the light level drops at night.
