Youngsters predicted the future as well as depositing a wide range of items.


Youngsters put their half-term break to good use, creating a time capsule which will not be opened for 20 years.

Portishead Youth Centre teamed up with estate agent Reeds Rains to deposit items for people to find in the future.

Sweets, newspapers, a map of the town and predictions of what the future will be like were among the items put in the capsule, which will be reopened in two decades.

Kim Jones, youth centre manager and youth development officer, said: “This has been a fun project for the young people to get involved in; we all had great fun thinking about what people in the future will think when they dig it up.”

Rozzanna Farbrace, from Reeds Rains, added: “We were delighted to involve some of the young people from Portishead in this project.

“The time capsule will be stored in a Reeds Rains safe for future to open February 2039.”
