A long-awaited time capsule has finally been buried in Denton.
When the new Affordable Housing was finally completed in August last year Saffron Housing announced they would be burying a time capsule on the site to record the success of the project. Yesterday, May 21st, the burial was carried out with a suitable, if not well publicised, ceremony.
In future years some confusion may result from the wording on the plaque (which is already showing its age) placed above the burial site which claims that the capsule was buried in August 2011. However most residents will be pleased to have a second capsule to go with the one buried in the Millennium Wood 12 years ago.
