Children created history for future generations by filling and burying a time capsule.

Pupils at Langtoft Primary School were invited to bury a snapshot of their lives in the new Baxter and King development in Gibb’s Road.

The developer and L&H Homes, which will own the new homes, wanted to pay tribute to Langtoft’s heritage.

The time capsule contains several different items. Pupils put together a scrapbook of memories of their time at the school, including trips around the country and fundraising events.

They also wrote down information on the latest gadgets, models of family cars and a booklet about the 2012 Olympics.

And one of the key items was a book of aspirations written by the pupils, including details on what they would like the world and their lives to be like when they are older.

Vice chairman of L&H Homes Keith Laidler thanked pupils and staff at the school for their work on the capsule.

“There’s a lot of hard work gone into this and I’m sure that when the time capsule is uncovered, the future generation will be fascinated with the contents.”
