Children from a local nursery helped bury a time capsule to celebrate a brand new extra care living scheme in Chelmsley Wood.
The time capsule was buried in the garden of Saxon Court at a celebration open day attended by residents and local people.
Saxon Court, which Solihull Community Housing (SCH) manage on behalf of Solihull Council, is a £7million assisted living scheme for people over the age of 55.
Children from the Woodland Trails Day Nursery popped drawings into the time capsule, along with letters and newspapers, to provide a snapshot of life in 2019.
SCH Chief Executive Fiona Hughes said: “It was fantastic that so many people attended the Saxon Court community open day. The day was enjoyed by everyone and I’m sure the time capsule will be a fascinating find when opened in 50 years.”
Saxon residents and visitors enjoyed some great tunes from the Northern Star Community Arts Ukulele Band and local singer Reza with local dance troupe Synergy also performing a range of routines from contemporary to Rock ‘n’ Roll.
