Pupils from Medina Primary School in Portsmouth went to McCarthy and Stone’s Carrick Court retirement home in Carmarthen Avenue, Drayton.

Among items buried were children’s writings about what they know of the city’s coastal and naval history.

Julie Ward, regional sales and marketing director of McCarthy and Stone South East, said: ‘We’d like to thank the children and teachers at Medina Primary School for coming along and helping us put together this glimpse 
into present day life in Drayton.

‘The time capsule is a fitting tribute created by the children to keep an important part of local history alive, and will be there to be found and treasured by whoever comes across it in the future.’

The time capsule was buried in the gardens of the development.

The home will have 12 one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom apartments, marketed exclusively for those over 60.
