Schoolchildren have captured a moment in time, burying a time capsule in the grounds of a new care home.

Year 3 pupils from The Orion Primary School in Mill Hill visited Signature at Hendon Hall - a Grade II listed venue that has been transformed into102 apartments for residents.

The children created artwork about what happiness means to them, along with letters to their future selves, which were buried alongside other items including school medals, newspapers and letters provided by residents of the home.

Following the ceremony, the children enjoyed refreshments in the grounds of the hall.

Rachel Shear, co-headteacher at The Orion Primary School: "The children were really excited to create their artwork and letters, making their own piece of history that adds to the story of this fascinating building. It’s exciting to picture people discovering the time capsule in years to come showing what life has been like for us."

Julya Holden and Rakhee Popat, client liaison managers at Signature Senior Lifestyle, added: "Hendon Hall has centuries of fascinating heritage and has worn many hats over the years, so it felt fitting to create our own special historic milestone - a memory box of sorts - with our residents and children from The Orion Primary School for its next chapter.

"As Oscar Wilde once said ‘memory is the diary that we all carry about with us’ – a fitting phrase for this special event."
