Sellindge Scouts and School

On Friday 5th April, we invited children from Sellindge Primary School and 1st Sellindge Scout Group to fill two capsules with items that will show future generations what life was like in our time.

Children at Sellindge Primary School filled their time capsule with scrolls including descriptions of what their lives are like. Jo Wren, Headmistress at the school said: “We had been working on a topic called “remember” so the invitation from Taylor Wimpey for our pupils to fill a time capsule couldn’t have come at a better time. The children really enjoyed the task and we’d like to thank Taylor Wimpey for asking us to take part.”

The 1st Sellindge Scouts opted to fill their time capsule with uniforms, information about the Scouts and photographs of their previous visits to the site. Maureen Stanley, leader of the Scout group, commented: “One of the core aims of scouting is to bring people together so we jumped at the chance to fill a time capsule which we hope will help future generations to connect with our lives.”

Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South East, said: “At Taylor Wimpey we are always keen to build relationships with the communities in which we are building. We were thrilled to learn that children from Sellindge Primary School and the 1st Sellindge Scout Group enjoyed taking part in the time capsule project and It was a pleasure to welcome them to The Lees to bury the capsules.”
