Time capsule buried at National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine

Time capsule

Balfour Beatty and a group of Year Five pupils from Mountfields Lodge School in Loughborough have buried a time capsule in the ground at the new National Centre of Sport and Exercise Medicine (NCSEM) on campus.

The capsule, provided by the school, contains items of interest based on three themes: local sport, health in the UK and sport across the world. Items placed in the time capsule included letters written by the pupils and teachers, a list of the school’s sports fixtures for 2014, photographs and newspaper clippings covering sports events, a medal and a swimming cap.

The NCSEM is an Olympic legacy project. Hosted at Loughborough, the East Midlands hub is one of three national centres, and is designed to integrate research, education and clinical services to accelerate the translation of scientific research into new models of patient care, and deliver a lasting health legacy to improve the health of the nation.
