Fawkham Parish Time Capsule

The time capsule to mark the end of the second Elizabethan era was buried on Saturday, when the Christmas tree lights were switched on. It contains a variety of information, including what Fawkham was like in 1952 and 2022, the coronation fetes of 1953, a photo of the Book Of Condolence for the Queen’s death, information about Fawkham Rocks, the Covid pandemic, Words of the Year for 2022, shopping receipts, the current cost of living crisis, photos of the Parish, items from this year’s Platinum Jubilee celebration, and much more – all the contents can be seen in the photo. The idea is that it will be opened in 50 years time or on the Coronation of King George VII, whichever comes first. 

All the children present were given a bag of chocolates, and the bags left over will be donated to the Community Cupboard.

Best wishes,

Fawkham Parish Council
