Rotherham: College saves a permanent period in time

Catering and hospitality staff at Rotherham College joined together with the principal and chief executive, Gill Alton, to say goodbye to the old restaurant by burying a time capsule.

The capsule included a visitor’s book, a current menu, promotional leaflets, college freebies and the brand new college course guide.

Alison Lomax, curriculum leader and restaurant manager, said: “Everyone involved agrees that the time capsule is a fantastic idea and a great way of marking the end of an era in The Wharncliffe.”

“Everyone is excited when you ask them how they feel, knowing that in the future someone will open the box and find their work or the photographs of them that we’ve added and understand about their time in college in the year 2013.”
