Recently representatives from Annington joined the pupils of Bordon Infant School – along with their parents/grandparents/teachers/neighbours – to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by planting a time capsule on school grounds.

The contents of the time capsule were chosen to reflect the Queen’s 70 years of service and included artwork designed by the pupils during their school-wide celebrations. The capsule also contained information on the day to day activities of the school in 2022, including pictures, maps and comments from parents and staff. The capsule will be dug up in 2052 by a new generation of pupils, who will be able to look back on the Jubilee celebrations as an insight into life at Bordon Infant School in 2022.

Annington is currently refurbishing a collection of three-bedroom former MOD properties, located adjacent to the school. Louise Saunders, Sales and Marketing Manager for Annington, added: “During this exciting time of national celebration, we are pleased to mark this point in history with Bordon Infant School. The ongoing town centre regeneration, alongside our own refurbishment works, mark a point of change for Bordon. Our work with the community is extremely important to us, and it’s exciting to think that our small piece of history will be preserved for future schoolchildren to discover in years to come.”

Matt Greenhalgh, Headteacher at Bordon Infant School, adds: “We are very excited to preserve such a momentous occasion in history at our school. The children were very enthusiastic and enjoyed discussing what they would find interesting if they were to dig up a time capsule from years ago. We would like to thank Annington for their support with our Jubilee celebrations and for assisting in such a memorable day for the pupils.”

Annington is refurbishing former MOD homes at The Pines, just a 7 minute walk from Bordon Infant School, with the first phase of three-bedroom homes starting from £315,000.
