Developer Linden Homes Enlists Sandy Youngsters To Help Mark A Milestone
26 Aug 2014

With a brand new development poised to launch this autumn, Linden Homes Midlands has enlisted the help of mini Time Lords to help mark a milestone in the town.

As building work gets under way at the Kestrel Ridge development in Sandy, children from the Treetops Nursery accepted a fun challenge to create a time capsule to bury on site.

This is the first time that the house builder has undertaken a project of this kind, and the pre-school youngsters have been working hard with nursery staff over the past few weeks to fill their very own capsule.

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-portraits 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.”

A group of children made the short trip from the nursery to the site off Station Road to help bury the capsule close to the show home.

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.”

A selection of 32 homes will be built Kestrel Ridge, located on the outskirts of the town centre – with the official opening due to take place this autumn. The showpiece of the development will be the spacious four-bedroom Langford housetype.

Kestrel Ridge’s close proximity to the town’s railway station makes it a desirable commutable retreat into London, with stations on route via Biggleswade, Hitchin and St Neots – as well a boasting excellent road links to the A1 and A1(M).

However, there is the chance to benefit from the best of both worlds, with Kestrel Ridge’s position just four-miles from the renowned RSPB sanctuary offering a location in which to also relax and enjoy life.
