PUPILS from Ash­ford Oaks Pri­mary School sent a mes­sage to the fu­ture by bury­ing a time cap­sule in the grounds of a new pub and res­tau­rant close to their school. News­pa­pers, letters, draw­ings, and pho­to­graphs were in­cluded in the cap­sule buried at the Pheas­ant, Eureka Park, Ash­ford. Head teacher Gerry D’Cruz said: “It re­ally chal­lenged the chil­dren to think about his­tory by leav­ing items to be dis­cov­ered in the fu­ture.” A plaque will also be put up at the Pheas­ant with the date of when the cap­sule was buried. Will Clough, man­ager of the Marston’s Inns and Tav­erns pub, said: “The time cap­sule is not only a fas­ci­nat­ing project for young­sters to take part in, but it’s also quite sym­bolic for us too. “It marks a place in time for me and all the staff here at the Pheas­ant and we will all be in­trigued to see how things have changed when the cap­sule is even­tu­ally un­cov­ered.”
