Children Make History as They Bury Time Capsule in Burton Latimer

Children from Meadowside Primary School in Burton Latimer have visited Grace Homes’ White Lodge Farm development to bury a time capsule filled with items that represent their local area in 2017. The capsule included a wide variety of treasures, ranging from fidget spinners through to postage stamps, and was buried in an area of green open space at White Lodge Farm.

Matt Bolger, Headteacher at Meadowside Primary School, said:

“This project really captured the children’s imagination, and they enjoyed thinking about what is special about living in Burton Latimer in 2017. We all enjoyed visiting the Grace Homes’ development, and the children are excited that the items they have chosen could be found in the future.”

All children from Meadowside were encouraged to think of items to put inside the time capsule. Ideas included pictures and photographs of the local area, as well as letters explaining what it is like to live in Burton Latimer in 2017. Grace Homes helped to choose the most creative ideas from each year that would best provide a snapshot of history to whoever finds it in the future. Some of Meadowside’s children were then invited to White Lodge Farm off Higham Road to help Managing Director, Henry Barney and Site Manager, Andy Redgwell to bury the capsule.

Andy Redgwell, Site Manager at Grace Homes, commented:

“It was great to meet the children from Meadowside Primary School at our development. They were excited to see the development from a different perspective, and to be part of creating something for future generations to find.”

Henry Barney, Managing Director at Grace Homes, added:

“When you create new homes, it’s incredibly important to build relationships with the existing communities in the local area. Burton Latimer has a wealth of local history, and we wanted to encourage local children to contribute to the continuing story of their area. We hope to strengthen our links with Burton Latimer with the launch of our Community Fund, which offer grants to local charities, sports organisations and schools.”

White Lodge Farm, off Higham Road in Burton Latimer, offers a superb collection of three and four-bedroom homes. The government’s Help to Buy scheme is available. More information about White Loge Farm.
