Pinner children looked to the future as they buried time capsules for the next generation to dig up.
Churchill Retirement Living invited local school children to its Heath Lodge retirement development in Marsh Road, Pinner to help bury a time capsule on site.
Pupils from Reddiford School joined owners from the lodge to bury the time capsule. The children each brought with them a piece of their best work which highlighted what they like about living in Pinner as well as a school book bag, umbrella, bookmark, sweatshirt and a cap.
Heath Lodge owners also put in a copy of a lodge newsletter and a picture of the owners taken at a recent event.
Mrs Nandini Sethi, a teacher at Reddiford School, said: “This has been a fun project for the school to get involved in and a wonderful opportunity for the children to meet with people from the wider community in Pinner and learn from them about the past.
“We’re very grateful to Churchill Retirement Living for organising the visit – all of the pupils worked very hard on their contributions for the time capsule, which I’m sure our descendants will have a lot of enjoyment looking through one day. We had great fun thinking about what people in the future will think when they dig it up!”
Yvette Christy, regional marketing manager at Churchill Retirement Living, added: “We were delighted to host the children from Reddiford School and were grateful for their help in making our time capsule extra special with their fantastic work. Our owners enjoyed talking with the pupils, and we hope that some of the same children can return with their own families one day to see the capsule dug up.”
