CHILDREN helped bury a time capsule to celebrate a new extra care living scheme in Chelmsley Wood.

Drawings by children from Woodland Trails Day Nursery in Chelmsley Wood were put into the time capsule, along with letters and newspapers, to provide a snapshot of life in 2019

It was buried in the garden of Saxon Court at a celebration open day attended by residents and Silhillians.

Northern Star Community Arts Ukulele Band and local singer Reza with local dance troupe Synergy were on hand to keep the crowds entertained.

Saxon Court, which Solihull Community Housing (SCH) manages on behalf of Solihull Council, is a £7million assisted living scheme for people over the age of 55.

SCH chief executive Fiona Hughes said: “It was fantastic that so many people attend the Saxon Court community open day.

“The day was enjoyed by everyone and I’m sure the time capsule will be a fascinating find when opened in 50 years.”
