Unearthing All Saints Church time capsule

28th February – A time capsule was buried in the foundation stone when All Saints Church was substantially rebuilt in 1867. The contents may not last indefinitely, so Slingsby PCC now has permission to examine the capsule, if it can be found.

The exploration by an accredited stonemason will take place on Saturday 28th February. If we find anything, who knows if it will still be in reasonable condition? Anyone interested is welcome to come along and see what is happening, from 10.30 a.m. onwards. Coffee will be available.
We are looking for ideas for non-perishable contemporary items to put back in a new capsule to mark the present time in history. If you have any suggestions please contact Margaret on 01653 628303 or Kate on 648739.
