East Greenwich Pleasaunce Time Capsule Contents

Gwladys asks:

Do you know what finally made it into the Pleasaunce time-capsule?

Kate Powling from the Friends of East Greenwich Pleasaunce replies:

The time capsule will be opened in 2157. It’s details will be lodged with the Time Capsule Society in Atlanta, USA and The National Maritime Museum here in Greenwich.

It’s contents have been decided by Friends members, members of the Royal Navy Assocation and children from Halstow Primary School.

They include:
a Royal Naval Association 2007 Diary;
a ticket to the Rolling Stones concert this summer at the o2;
a DVD about the Thames from Greenwich Yacht club;
a memory stick containing 1 year’s worth of the popular local blog, www.thegreenwichphantom.co.uk ;
a London A-Z map,
a mix CD made by a ten year old boy of music he likes listening to;
a lightbulb;
a Valley Review programme from Charlton Athletic;
a mobile phone;
a small car;
a description of a typical day at school;
a photo and explanation of Red Nose Day;
the front page of a local newspaper;
a menu from a local pub;
a drawing of the Dome;
several photographs, postcards, DVD’s and powerpoint presentations reflecting life in Greenwich in 2007;
a small Wellington boot symbolising all the children who have played in the Pleasaunce, and will do so in the future.
