Wembley schoolchildren create a piece of history by burying a time capsule
Pupils at St Joseph’s Primary School take part in Wembley City event
Lucky schoolchildren were given the chance to bury a little piece of history at a major development site in Wembley.
Around 15 Children from St Joseph’s Primary School in Waverley Avenue, Wembley, filled a capsule with artefacts including their own drawings along with a selection of written thoughts and site images from the Quintain Team, who are heading up developments in Wembley City.
Cllr Ann John OBE, Brent Council leader, was at the ceremony along with representatives from Quintain and the delighted school pupils.
Matt Voyce, head of Wembley delivery at Quintain, said they were delighted to be ‘embracing the local community. He said: “It was lovely to see local representatives from St Joseph’s school here today, to be part of the time capsule ceremony and contribute to some of the artefacts that have been buried.”
