We asked the newest generation of residents in Sandy, Bedfordshire, to help us bury a time capsule that may in turn be unearthed by generations to come.
Youngsters from Treetops Nursery assisted in interring the box of mementos at our Midlands region’s nearby Kestrel Ridge development, where construction is getting underway on 32 high quality homes.
Nursery manager Gina Brooks said: “The children have had a lot of fun putting the time capsule together and deciding what they want to include.
“Items range from self-portrait drawings with details of jobs they would like to do when they grow up, the local newspaper, photos of the staff and information about the nursery and details about the Linden Homes development.”
Linden Homes Midlands area sales manager Warren O’Callaghan added: “Our huge thanks to the children and staff at Treetops Nursery for the effort and enthusiasm they have put into producing such a fantastic time capsule – marking a milestone for us as we build our first development in Sandy.
“It does seem such a shame to bury the capsule, but exciting to wonder who may discover it in years to come.”
