A retirement home has given the future generations of Huntingdon a glimpse into life in the town in 2018 by inviting school children to help bury a time capsule on site.

Pupils from Stukeley Meadows Primary School joined residents at Moorhouse Lodge, in Edison Bell Way, to bury the time capsule, which they filled with special drawings, newspapers and stories of their favourite things to do in Huntingdon.

James Singleterry, head teacher at Stukeley Meadows Primary School, said: “This has been a fun project for the pupils to get involved in and a wonderful opportunity for the children to not only get creative, but also meet with people from the wider community in Huntingdon.

“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.”
