What to put in a time capsule


A time capsule is to be buried in Brodick with memorabili­a from the last year spent in lockdown.

And Brodick Improvemen­ts Committee wants suggestion­s of what to put in it from villagers. Chairman Harry Davidson said: ‘I was approached by Carol Harwood of the Big Co-op recently to ask if BIC would consider burying a time capsule in one of the big stone flower beds across from the store with memorabili­a of the past year of the pandemic within Brodick and Arran. ‘Just think, in 100 years from now it may be dug up and an inhabitant of Brodick might discover the sort of life we lived in lockdown and the worry and effects of loneliness on some of us.’

Memorabili­a of the pandemic would include a facemask - in a sealed packet, of course, a copy of the Arran Banner, an empty vaccine bottle, a Co-op membership card – all things of this time. Any more suggestion­s of small items relevant to this last year can be sent by email to bic.contactus@ bitinterne­
