Grace Homes, a local housebuilder, recently welcomed a class of children from Hallaton Primary School to bury a time capsule at their Walnut View development. Year 3 pupils were invited to fill the vessel with memories that reflect life in 2021. The capsule was subsequently buried in the meadowland at the bottom of the development.
It is no surprise, given all children have lived through a pandemic, that a variety of COVID-related items made their way into the capsule, including hand sanitiser, masks and tests. Despite the disappointment of the final, the excitement of Euro 2020 has also been preserved, with inclusion of a squad photo and that classic stalwart – the sticker album. Personal treasures such as a favourite chocolate bar, fidget toys and even an armadillo also made the final cut. There was even a photograph of one of the future residents at Walnut View – the grandad of pupil Ellie Price.
The children carried the time capsule from their school to Walnut View, where Land Director Dan Browne and Site Manager Andy Redgwell were on hand to help to bury it.
Dan Browne commented: “It was a pleasure to welcome Hallaton Primary to our site, and to hear about the memories secured in their time capsule. We hope this day is something the children remember for years to come.”
Rebecca Hedgecott, Year 3 Teacher, said: “Given the challenges we’ve all faced this year due to COVID, it was a great time to record our memories for future generations to discover. Visiting the development was such an enjoyable experience for our pupils, and we are very grateful to Grace Homes for making this possible.”
