Diss students plant time capsule at community woodland
Schoolchildren gathered at a community woodland to open a new pathway and bury a time capsule filled with their drawings.
Pupils from Diss Church of England Junior School walked up to Quaker Wood, off Factory Lane, this morning to plant the capsule under a plaque marking the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Members of the Diss Community Woodland project received funding from the South Norfolk Council neighbourhood fund for the path and the donation of a stone by HL Perfitt stonemasons in Diss.
The Year 4 pupils put drawings of the Queen, the Olympic stadium, the Royal barge and other Jubilee themed pictures into the time capsule.
Dick Mitchell, chairman of the Diss Community Woodland, which has been going for five years, said the students also paid a visit to tend and measure the saplings they planted at the woodland in previous years.
He added that he hoped that the children will continue to care for the plants and look after the wood in years to come.
