A time capsule representing people living in the year 2015 has been buried at Kempston’s Robert Bruce Middle School.

Year 7 youngsters brought in items to bury within the school grounds and they also wrote letters to children of the future.

Among the items included in the capsule were the school’s current prospectus, a picture and write-up about headteacher Karen Parker, school branded pens and pencils and music.

The students braved the chilly temperature following snow the night before to dig a hole into the frozen soil on Tuesday with the help of school handyman Bob Palmer.

It is expected that the capsule will be dug up and opened in around 20 to 25 years time.

The project was led by English teacher Victor Bronizewski.
