CHILDREN in Wimbish made history by burying a village time capsule.

Residents gathered together for the burial on the common ground at the village primary school.

Contributions to the time capsule were made by various village committees, the school and businesses to give a clear and detailed picture of life in Wimbish today.

Cheese and wine were supplied by the Jubblies of Wimbish, a committee which raises money for the community by organising various village social events.

The time capsule was buried in front of a young oak tree provided by the parish council and a plaque was placed in front of the time capsule, informing future residents that the capsule should be left underground for at least 50 years.
