Children from a primary school in Borehamwood have buried a time capsule at our Gemini Park development in the town.
The pupils from Kenilworth Primary School, in Kenilworth Drive, filled the capsule with items to illustrate the theme ‘day-to-day life for a child in Borehamwood’.
The capsule burial ceremony took place on Wednesday 1st July at Gemini Park, off Manor Way, just down the road from the school.
Kenilworth Primary School Headteacher Samantha Jayasuriya said there was great excitement at the school as soon as the specially-made time capsule arrived.
She says: “The time capsule was fab! I didn’t expect it to be as big as it was. The plaque on top was lovely and we were all very excited.
“I showed it to the school in assembly, and the children talked with their teachers about what they wanted to, before making a final selection just before the event.”
Christine Scarborough, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Thames, says: “We were delighted to welcome pupils and teachers from Kenilworth Primary School to Gemini Park for the burial of the time capsule.
“The youngsters have done a great job in documenting contemporary life, and the project has been a great way for them to think not only about life today, but also in the future.
“The time capsule also reflects the importance that we, as a local housebuilder, place on investing in local communities for the benefit of local people now and for generations to come.”
Gemini Park currently offers a choice of stylish one-bedroom apartments.
