A SNAPSHOT of life in Conisbrough in 2011 has been preserved for future generations to look back on thanks to pupils at a primary school.

NHS Doncaster staff asked members of class six at Morley Place Junior School to fill a time capsule to be buried at The Stone Castle Centre – the village’s new multi-million-pound health centre, being built at Gardens Lane.

The seven- to nine-year-olds, led by teacher Nicola Walker, put their heads together to suggest what should be included in the capsule.

They then agreed a final list after a class vote, with items including a school uniform, a tea-towel, a school dinner menu, coins, a bus ticket and pictures of themselves.

NHS Doncaster Chairman Roger Greenwood invited the whole class to help bury the capsule, with the help of site manager Doug Eastwood from construction firm Morgan Sindall.

Mr Greenwood said: “We’re delighted with the support the school and its pupils have given us, by not only filling the capsule but also by producing artwork that will be on permanent display when the building opens in July.”
