Time pod has pupils’ hopes for city’s fu­ture

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

CHIL­DREN from schools in Peter­bor­ough have been putting pen to pa­per to record their thoughts for the fu­ture.

Young­sters from about nine schools have writ­ten let­ters out­lin­ing their hopes for the fu­ture of Peter­bor­ough and how they imag­ine the city might look in the years to come, along with a lit­tle bit about them­selves, and they have been placed in a time cap­sule that has been buried at a re­tail park.

Mayor of Peter­bor­ough Coun­cil­lor Paulathacker at­tended a cer­e­mony at the Brother­hood Re­tail Park, which is cur­rently un­der­go­ing a £23 mil­lion re­vamp and will re­open later this year, to bury the time cap­sule and also placed a com­mem­o­ra­tive plaque on the site.

Phil Huby, As­set Man­ager for the Brother­hood Shop­ping Park, said that more than 700 pri­mary school pupils had taken part in the time cap­sule project.

The cap­sule will not be re­opened un­til 2032.

Mr Huby said: “With the de­vel­op­ment of the Brother­hood Shop­ping Park now fully un­der­way and only a few months to go un­til the first few units open, the time cap­sule is the per­fect ad­di­tion to the site.

He said: “We would like to thank ev­ery­one that has taken part in our time cap­sule project.

Mr Huby added: “It will be re­ally in­ter­est­ing to know whether the chil­dren’s as­pi­ra­tions and pre­dic­tions for the town come true.”
