CHILDREN have helped to bury a time capsule in Malmesbury to mark the opening of a new retirement development.

Churchill Retirement Living recently opened its new William Lodge development, and to celebrate the opening invited pupils from Malmesbury CofE Primary School on Wednesday, December 13 to help owners of the Lodge bury the time capsule.

It was filled with a special handmade card signed by every pupil, music sheets from the school choir, and a collage of the school’s badge, created by year five pupils.

Headteacher at Malmesbury CofE Primary School Steve Heal, said: “This has been a fun project for the school to get involved in and a wonderful opportunity for the children not only to get creative, but also to meet with people for the wider community in Malmesbury.

“We’re very grateful to Churchill Retirement living for organising the visit. All of the pupils worked very hard on their creations 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.

Regional marketing executive at Churchill Retirement Living, Jo Ridehalgh, said: “We were delighted to host the children from CofE Primary 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.”
