So what was the idea behind the time capsule?
Kris: In 2000 there was a competition ran in conjunction with Sutton Porsche Evans Halshaw to design a concept car for the year 2020.
Who ran the competition?
Kris: The DT teacher who ran ran it at the time had blonde hair but her name escapes me.
Jonathan: It would have been Dawn Walker who was HOD at the time. I’ve got extremely vague memories of us burying it and the area shown does ring a bell. Pretty sure It was a length of plastic drain pipe we used.
Did you win the competition?
Kris: I won the competition and we buried the drawing in a grey pipe (made by John who managed the DT workshop) in the grounds roughly somewhere in the red area - I cannot remember if we marked the soil in anyway but it would have been a good idea! With the drawing there were various school artefacts - prospectus tie etc.
When were you planning on digging up the time capsule?
Kris: The idea was to dig it up in 2020 so you still have some time yet but happy to provide more info as and when required - I think my dad has a newspaper cutting somewhere so I will see if I can dig it out!
