On Thursday I was delighted to be able to attend the a ceremony in Central Library (half way through refurbishment!) to announce the winners of the Time Capsule Competition for Manchester School Children. Children were asked to suggest an object that would give children in 2092 an idea of what it was like to be a child in 2012. There were eleven winners from schools across the City and they each got the opportunity to place their suggested item in the capsule and receive a cash prize for them and their school from the sponsors. The Time capsule will be buried under Library Walk for 80 years.
Well Done to Stanley from Chorlton CoE School who suggested putting a Manchester United and Manchester City shirt in the capsule because "it shows the love and passion for football in Manchester."
Below are some photos of other winning entries and the refurbishment work:
