A group of local school children visited a retirement village last week to help bury a time capsule.

Pupils from St Peter's Church of England Primary School visited Beeches Lodge retirement development in Burnham and each brought with them a piece of their best work.

Beeches Lodge Owners also put in a copy of the Bucks Free Press newspaper, along with a letter from one of the Owners who used to live in Reedham House which used to stand on the site.

Headteacher Mrs Morris 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 Burnham and learn from them about the past.

"We’re very grateful to Churchill Retirement Living for organizing 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.

Slough Observer:

"We had great fun thinking about what people in the future will think when they dig it up!”

Dawn Coster, Regional Marketing Executive at Churchill Retirement Living, added: “We were delighted to host the children from St Peter's Church of England 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.”
