Time To Remember?

Staff at Green Lane School in Worcester Park are appealing for help locating a time capsule which is believed to have been buried at the school 60 years ago.

The school has been approached by BBC Surrey and Sussex on behalf of one of  their ex-pupils who is now in her sixties but is unfortunately terminally ill.

The former pupil has compiled a 'Bucket List' which includes finding the 'Time Capsule' which she says was buried in 1952 to commemorate the Queen's accession to the throne.

Unfortunately nobody currently at the school has any knowledge of where the time capsule was buried and they no longer have any records from that era.

The BBC, who are broadcasting her progress with her list, have arranged for a metal detecting expert to come on board but the school is appealing for any former pupils who have any recollections of the time capsule to get in touch.

If you have any information that might help in the search for the capsule, contact Jo Davey at Green Lane School.
