Children from Springmead Primary School in Welwyn Garden City visited our sold-out Mirage development to bury a time capsule, a project which we plan to repeat at our new Gemini Park development in Borehamwood in the near future.

The capsule provides a snapshot of 21st century life for Welwyn Garden City youngsters and contains a range of items chosen by the pupils including photos of the school, a dinner menu, the school logo and the school badge.

Fifteen pupils from the school attended the burial ceremony to mark the occasion in the paved tree lined courtyard at Mirage.

The event was also attended by teachers from the school along with Taylor Wimpey North Thames Managing Director Peter Gurr, Sales and Marketing Director Christine Scarborough, Project Manager Tony Butcher, Production Director Darren Dockerill and Sales Executive Tamara Sim. 

Peter Gurr, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Thames, says: “We were delighted to welcome pupils and teachers from Springmead Primary School to Mirage for the burial of the time capsule.

“The youngsters have done a great job in documenting contemporary school life and the project has been a great way for them to think not only about life today, but also in the future.”

Christine Scarborough, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, adds: “The time capsule 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.”
