Stonebridge children leave lasting memories in time capsule

Posted 26/08/2021

150 school children have taken part in a time capsule project to share their experiences of living first-hand during Covid-19. The event took place on the last day of the school term where contributions were collected and certificates given to each student, along with a leavers T-shirt. The time capsule is set to be buried underneath the play area next year as part of the new Hillside and Milton Avenue development in Stonebridge.

Cllr Southwood, Brent’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Welfare Reform said, The past 18 months have been incredibly challenging for young people, and I hope that future generations will see the resilience these students have shown when they open the time capsule.

Amy Ross, Head of Social Value at Higgins Partnerships said, We would really like to thank the children for all their wonderful contributions they have made for the time capsule which will be a lasting legacy at our Stonebridge development.

The development at Hillside and Milton Avenue is a £22 million scheme to build 73 new homes, one retail unit with new public open space for local residents.
