Law firm teams up with school for time capsule burial

Leading law firm, Slater Heelis, has teamed up with Brooklands Primary School to create a time capsule that they buried in Worthington Park in Sale, to celebrate 250 years in business.

Slater Heelis worked with the local primary school and its pupils to put together the capsule, which included drawings from the Year 1 students depicting their favourite places in Sale, a school jumper, Slater Heelis 250th anniversary water bottle and other merchandise; local magazines including a profile piece on the firm and a selection of newspapers from the day.

With the support from over 30 pupils from the school and Friends of Worthington Park community group, the time capsule is now buried at the Slater Heelis bench located in Worthington Park’s Cyril Flint Garden and is set to be reopened 50 years from now, in 2083.

Chris Bishop, managing partner at Slater Heelis was on hand himself to help bury the capsule and said: “The capsule captures a real moment in time for us as a business but also for the community. With the history of Slater Heelis dating back to 1773 and a 104-year presence in Sale, our firm has been on quite a path to get to where it is today. I’m immensely proud of our journey and look forward to supporting the next generation of solicitors and lawyers who we hope will re-open the capsule with the school in 50 years’ time.”

Headquartered in Sale, Slater Heelis offers legal services across the UK and is well known for its award-winning work with individuals and businesses alike.

Chief Marketing Officer, Kristen Drummond who arranged the joint-campaign and attended with her own Son, Logan added: “It was great to get the children from Brooklands Primary School involved and the teachers did an amazing job of using the opportunity to educate the children on Sale’s history over the years. The experience even saw some of the children do their own drawings of our town in the style of LS Lowry, which we’ve of course included in the capsule!

“It was fantastic to see so many of the children from the school join us for the capsule burial; they really got into the spirit of the day and it was a very exciting and proud occasion for all involved! We hope whoever has the joy of opening up the capsule will enjoy the small but poignant pieces of our history inside!”

As a token of thanks for their hard work and involvement in the anniversary activities, Slater Heelis has donated a £250 cash boost to the school to be used for learning materials in the classrooms of Year 1 students.
