Crayford buries time capsule to mark new library
Future residents of Crayford will get a glimpse of the past when they open a time capsule to mark the opening of the town's new library.
Residents were asked for ideas on what to put in the time capsule. The results were a mix of local, national and international items representing 2012 including poems and photographs, and Oyster card and a computer mouse.
The capsule will not be opened until 2045 when it will be used to celebrate 100 years of public libraries in Crayford.
It also includes St Paulinus C of E Primary School pupil’s predictions of how the town will be then.
Head teacher Marilyn Davey said: “It was a very worthwhile project which the children enjoyed. They put a CD of Crayford photos in the capsule but wondered if the recipients would have the technology to see them.”
