The award-winning housebuilder has teamed up with children from the school in Bingham, Nottinghamshire, to create a time capsule to commemorate a year that has seen such major events as the Diamond Jubilee and inspirational sporting successes.
Twelve 4–7 year-olds were asked to write stories, poems, reports and draw pictures to capture some of their favourite 2012 moments.
These have been placed in a time capsule, which was buried at Miller Homes’ Dukesmead development. The ceremony was attended by the children, staff from Robert Miles Infant School and Miller Homes, and the Mayor of Rushcliffe Borough Council, Councillor Irving Korn.
Commenting after the event, Paul Walters, regional sales manager for Miller Homes East Midlands, said:
“It’s safe to say that 2012 has been a year to remember. We wanted to mark the feel good factor that the past 12 months have created and a time capsule seemed like the perfect option.
“The children have done a fantastic job and have been really creative with the items they’ve created. The whole team is thrilled that the capsule is at Dukesmead and will help to give people in years to come the chance to find out more about 2012.”
Helen Greensmith, Head Teacher at Robert Miles Infant School, added:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for our children to be involved with the community and share what has been meaningful to them this year.”
