Event at Mill Apartments was organised by construction companies Taylor Wimpey and Willmott Dixon

Youngsters from a Kilburn nursery buried an Olympic and Jubilee themed time capsule in the grounds of a new set of apartments.

The tiny tots from Fordwych Nursery in Fordwych Road, planted the memorabilia in the nature reserve surrounding Mill Apartments in Mill Lane, Kilburn, yesterday.

The time capsule included a large poster decorated in blue, red and white to represent the Union Jack and symbolise the Queen’s Jubilee, a book of memories with a page from each of the children at the nursery and memorabilia from the Olympics, Paralympics and Jubilee including cuddly mascot characters, mugs and flags.

During the event organised by construction companies Taylor Wimpey and Willmott Dixon, the children were also educated on the importance of safety on a building site.

Ingrid Skinner, from Taylor Wimpey, said: “The time capsule was a great opportunity to celebrate the events taking place in London this year, but also an opportunity to involve the local community, especially the children and parents who have seen the Mill Apartments go up brick by brick every day.”
