Newport pupils help fill Friars Walk time capsule

A time capsule buried in the new Friars Walk retail and leisure scheme will give future generations a glimpse of life in Newport. Schools in the city contributed items for the time capsule which is due to be opened in 50 years. 

The time capsule was the idea of Councillor Majid Rahman and he also attended the ceremony which took place on Wednesday 21 October 2015.

Schools were invited to submit items and their contributions included DVDs of school concerts, memory sticks containing their work, school ties, letters to "people in the future", photographs of the city centre and the Newport Monopoly game.

There were also photographs from when Newport hosted the Nato summit in 2014. President Barack Obama visited Mount Pleasant Primary School and pupils from city schools were guests at a summit event in the Celtic Manor attended by Mr Obama, Prince Charles and the Prime Minister. 

You can read more about this on the council's website.
