Last updated at 21:23, Thursday, 19 July 2012
The hopes and dreams of about 70 Workington school pupils were captured for all time at a ceremony in Workington yesterday.
The youngsters from Northside Primary School buried notes about their dreams for the future in a time capsule near the new Northside Bridge.
The capsule also featured memorabilia from the diamond jubilee, pictures of each child with an Olympic torch, a school photograph, notes with each child’s birthday and the school’s uniform.
The capsule with a cast aluminum top says: ‘Northside Primary School Time Capsule 2012’ and was buried six feet underground near the new bridge’s north pier on Northside Road.
Alan Barry, vice chairman of Cumbria County Council, Mary Ann Lancaster, chairman of school governors, and Phil Dilworth, site manager, attended the event.
Pupil Kelsie Walker, 10, said: “It has been an amazing experience. Our class worked on a newspaper article on the Workington Olympics which we’ve put in the capsule.”
Jennie Carter, acting headteacher, said: “The whole school and our nursery have put something in the capsule, and they’re really excited about it being found in the future.
“We’re excited that we’re going to have a new bridge here very soon.”
