A time capsule has been buried by schoolchildren to celebrate the 100th birthday of King’s Gardens!
Pupils that form ‘The Green Machine’ environmental group had previously placed objects in the time capsule that represented the past, the present and their interpretation of the future of King’s Gardens.
Included in the capsule were a 100th birthday card, letters to the person opening the capsule and objects from the historical features of the gardens.
Schools that took part in the scheme included Norwood Primary School, Holy Family Primary School, St Philip's Primary School, Larkfield Primary School and Meols Cop High School.
The time capsule was buried by pupils watched by Cabinet Member Children, Schools, Families and Lesiure, Cllr Ian Moncur, ward councillors and Sefton Council officers working on the project.
Cllr Moncur said: "The time capsule was a fitting way to celebrate King's Gardens 100th anniversary.
"Pupils as part of The Green Machine spent a lot of time and effort on the scheme as they learnt more and more about the history of these impressive gardens."
