Pupils leave a mystery for future generations


TEACHERS and pupils have joined forces with Warrington Borough Council, Balfour Beatty and Culture Warrington to bury three time capsules within the newly renovated Cenotaph.
The containers have been created by pupils from Stockton Health, Latchford St James and Oakwood Avenue primary schools. They were asked to contribute personal items which are important to them and have kept the items a secret so that the containers remain a mystery until they are uncovered by future generations.
The capsules were buried in the monument by the Mayor of Warrington, Cllr Wendy Johnson, Mayors consort Beverley Hallam and leader of the Council, Cllr Russ Bowden.
Cllr Johnson said: “I am delighted that the children got on board to support us with this important project. Time capsules are a fantastic way of using major works to celebrate our history and heritage. The pupils were thrilled to help mark this occasion by creating a piece of local history which will give future generations a snapshot of what life was like in 2019.”
“The Cenotaph is one of Warrington’s most important and highly valued icons. It’s fantastic that local school children have been learning about how the work we are doing now will safeguard it for future generations.”
Following the completion of works to stabilise the river bank works will now continue to reintroduce the monument and surrounding walls back into the area
The works will be complete in time for the Remembrance Sunday Parade to take place in November.
