School children bury time capsule at Pinner retirement development

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

Pupils from Reddiford School joined Owners from the Lodge to bury the time capsule. The children each brought with them a piece of their best work which highlighted what they like about living in Pinner as well as a school book bag, umbrella, bookmark, sweatshirt and a cap.

Heath Lodge Owners also put in a copy of the Harrow Times newspaper, along with a Lodge newsletter and a picture of the Owners taken at a recent event.

Mrs Nandini Sethi, a teacher at Reddiford 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 Pinner 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 Reddiford 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 Marsh Road, Heath 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 on the stunning roof terrace, or attending one of the regular social events in the Owners’ Lounge.
