School children bury time capsule at Marlow retirement development

Churchill Retirement Living has invited local school children to its Peel Lodge retirement development in Marlow to help bury a time capsule on site.

Pupils from St Peter's Catholic Primary School joined Owners from the Lodge to bury the time capsule. The children brought a piece of best work from each class which included a drawing showcasing what they love about living in Marlow, as well as a school prospectus, branded uniform and book mark to place into the time capsule. Peel Lodge Owners also put in a copy of the Bucks Free Press newspaper, along with a photograph of themselves.

Kathryn Thomas, head teacher at St Peter's Catholic Primary School, said:

This has been a fun project for the school to get involved in and a wonderful opportunity for the children to meet with people from the wider community in Marlow and learn from them about the past. We’re very grateful to Churchill Retirement Living for organising the visit - all of the pupils worked very hard on their contributions for the time capsule, which I’m sure our descendants will have a lot of enjoyment looking through one day. We had great fun thinking about what people in the future will think when they dig it up!

 Yvette Christy, Regional Marketing Manager at Churchill Retirement Living, added: “We were delighted to host the children from St Peter's Catholic Primary School and were grateful for their help in making our time capsule extra special with their fantastic work. Our Owners enjoyed talking with the pupils, and we hope that some of the same children can return with their own families one day to see the capsule dug up.”

Located on Dean Street, Peel Lodge is a collection of 30 one and two bedroom privately owned retirement apartments and shared facilities, designed exclusively for the over 60s. Apartments boast spacious rooms throughout and an ideal combination of design and functionality. The fully fitted, stylish kitchens include a built in fridge and freezer, hob and an oven, which is located at an easy-reach height. All of the properties benefit from illuminated light switches for added convenience. Owners also enjoy ultimate peace of mind from a fitted camera entry system for the highest level of security and a 24-hour emergency call system.

With less to worry about, Owners have more time to do the things they enjoy, such as having family or friends to stay in the development’s well-appointed Guest Suite, enjoying a chat with neighbours, or attending one of the regular social events in the Owners’ Lounge.
