Gorleston woman’s plea to find forgotten time capsules
- Credit: Nick Butcher
A former pupil is hoping to dig up time capsules buried in the grounds of her old school before new homes are built.
Jenny Oxborough went to Claydon Secondary Modern School in the mid-1960s and left in 1970. She said she hopes to be able to visit the site with a metal detector to search for the hidden cans.
The school in Beccles Road, Gorleston closed in 1999 and was raised to the ground in 2001. It was bought by developers in 2014.
Mrs Oxborough said she loved her schooldays, adding: 'I remember exactly how it was. It was a lovely school.'
She arranged reunions in 1990 and again in November 2002, with 1,000 people turning up to the first one.

Edward Gilder from Badger Homes said the company would be keen to allow this, but wanted to wait for full planning permission to be granted first. The decision should be made by the borough's planning committee next month.
