Idlewells hides war-themed time capsule

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the first world war, the Idlewells Shopping Centre, Sutton, put together a memorial time capsule featuring drawings, photographs, poems and completed ration book-style questionnaires.

The capsule will be hidden for four years in the Idlewells central clock.

On 4th August, both young and old took part in a workshop aimed at encouraging reflection of the past – with drawings and poems for the capsule – and also listing luxuries and prominent people of the present.

Photographs of the centre’s giant memorial poppy field canvases – and many of those who made their mark on them – will also be hidden away for four years above the Massarella’s café, with a display of the contents planned for 2018.
