A SELECTION of drawings, diaries, coins, school stationery and other items were buried in a time capsule at a new housing development in Hagley this week.

Bromsgrove District Council Chairman, Coun Caroline Spencer joined pupils from Hagley Primary School for the event in the grounds of McCarthy & Stone’s Sanderson Court.

It is hoped the items will provide a snapshot for future generations of what children’s lives were like in 2016.

Coun Spencer said it was wonderful to be invited to the event.

“The time capsule will act as a glimpse into the past for whoever gets their hands on it years down the line.

“Events like this are great for future generations to see how we all used to live and prove to be not only fun but also educational.”

Robert Monkman, Mcarthy and Stones West Midlands’ sales and marketing director, added: “We’d like to thank the children and teachers at Hagley Primary School, and Coun Spencer for coming along and helping us put together this glimpse into present day life.

“The time capsule is a fitting tribute created by the children to keep an important part of local history alive, and will be there to be found and treasured by whoever comes across it in the future.”
