READER LETTER: Time capsule ownership

editorial image

The committee of the Gainsborough Heritage Centre, and I, would like to make clear that the ownership of the time capsule, uncovered during recent demolition works at Morton Chapel and the topic of an article in the Standard, is that of Maurice Hall.

We appreciate that it must have been quite upsetting for him to not be publicly acknowledged as the owner, this was an unfortunate misunderstanding. It is very much appreciated that this inaccuracy was pointed out so the matter could be corrected.

We are pleased that Mr Hall has since made the decision to donate the time capsule to the GDHA so that we may continue to allow it to be seen by our visitors. It is currently still on display at the centre.
