Youngsters from a nursery in Sandy, Bedfordshire, were enlisted by our Midlands region to help preserve a record of their community’s past, present and future.
Children and staff from Treetops Nursery are taking part in a time capsule challenge, as we prepare to start work on our new Kestrel Ridge development of 32 homes in Station Road on the edge of the town centre.
The youngsters will be researching and putting together a collection of items meaningful for themselves and their local area. Objects might include photos, drawings, newspapers and a Kestrel Ridge brochure, which will be carefully buried on the site later in the summer.
Nursery manager Gina Brook said: “This is a wonderful project for the children to be involved with and continues our association with Linden Homes.
“The time capsule is a great idea and we are all very excited about putting it together and burying it on the development later in the year.”
Linden Homes Midlands area sales manager Warren O’Callaghan added: “We are delighted to build on our community links with Treetops Nursery and for Sandy to be the first development where we have buried a time capsule marks an exciting time for us. We are looking forward to seeing the result of their efforts.”
All waste plasterboard is recycled and used in the manufacture of new plasterboard products.
