Blackburn College create Jubilee time capsule

First published in Jubilee News Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Reporter

A DIAMOND Jubilee inspired time caspule is being created by Blackburn College to celebrate the last 60 years.

It is appealing for people’s memories, photos and memorabilia to create a picture of the college over the last six decades.

The capsule will be buried beneath the Feilden Street building when it is demolished in August.

Principal Ian Clinton said: “The time capsule will be a great way to preserve people’s memories and moments at the college over the past 60 years as well as signal a new era.

“We’ve been investing heavily in the campus and its facilities over the past 10 years, so much so that it will almost be unrecognisable from what it looked like 60 years ago.

“We want to show future generations how far we’ve grown not only in size, but in technology and facilities.

“It will also be great to show the differences in the demographic of our past and present students. We now teach everybody, from 16-year-olds studying A-levels to an 80-year-old studying an art degree.”

The demolition of the Feilden Street building is the fourth phase of the college’s master plan to create a world-class campus.

Mr Clinton added: “We’re calling on all past and present students and staff to get in touch with anything they would like to be considered for the capsule.

“They can email us at mark eting@blackburn.ac.uk by July 20.

"We are looking forward to putting it all together.”

because it's a time capsule that's only buried for 60 years..

Talk about sins of the Fathers visited upon the Sons..
relevant history in, kean..not.

I couldn't in my wildest imagination consider putting him in the pot, for future generations to wonder as to our why.
Much as there have been days when I could have easily killed both of my daughters, to inflict upon their grandchildren, him..is beyond the pale.
I say...NO!

Am already prepared for his disappearance, dreaming of..
Police today continue to search Mire Ash Brow for remains, which they say is complicated by previous, similar deposits.

night all, am going to bed,
perchance to dream, of slings and arrows and outrageous fortunes..
of a baldy skull, that lies in my hand, so just an end.
'Alas poor Yokel, he met his final fallatio. For as it is written, and the hand did write upon the wall, then move on..
'Steve Kean sucks."

You don't get words like these from Burnley, where they think that erudite, is a glue from B&Q.

Is what necessary? The time capsule or the demolition of an eyesore?
Yes, I think we should put SK in there: at least if they do dig it up in 60 years he will no longer be in a position to do any damage......
