School children bury time capsule at Wetherby retirement development

Churchill Retirement Living has given future generations a glimpse into life in Wetherby in 2018 by inviting local school children to help bury a time capsule on site.

Pupils from Deighton Gates Primary School joined Owners at Tatterton Lodge on York Road to bury the time capsule, which they have filled with special poems, drawings, book reviews and their favourite things to do in Wetherby.

Claire Gibson, Year 3 class teacher at Deighton Gates Primary School, said: “This has been a fun project for the class to get involved in and a wonderful opportunity for the children to not only get creative, but also meet with people from the wider community in Wetherby. We’re very grateful to Churchill Retirement Living for organising the visit - all of the pupils worked very hard on their creations 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!”

Bernadette Hennelly, Regional Marketing Manager at Churchill Retirement Living, said:

We were delighted to host the children from Deighton Gates 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.

Tatterton Lodge on York Road comprises a collection of one and two bedroom privately owned retirement apartments and shared facilities, designed exclusively for the over 60s. Offering quality retirement accommodation and safe and independent living, the development is in a convenient location close to local shops and amenities.

With less to worry about, Owners have more time to do the things they enjoy, including taking advantage of the host of other benefits which will be on offer including having family or friends to stay in the development’s well-appointed Guest Suite, enjoying a chat with neighbours in the landscaped gardens, or attending one of the many events, in the Owners’ Lounge.
