Children from Lundin Mill Primary School also played a pivotal role in the official opening of the Homelands site, drawing together special items for a time capsule which was buried on the grounds.

Ten pupils visited the site with head teacher Anne Urquhart, all clearly very excited to be involved in this little piece of history, in what is also a special year for them - the schools 40th anniversary.

With help from patron Sir Menzies Campbell the capsule was buried in a specially dug hole, right underneath a beautiful porch made of timber from the former Homelands property owned by Miss Paxton.

The capsule will not be opened until 2064 - and it’s hoped that its contents will shine a little light on what life is like today.

Mrs Urquhart said: “Inside the capsule there’s some pieces of writing by our older children on what life as a pupil at Lundin Mill in 2014 is like, and what its like living in Lundin Links too, so hopefully people in 50 years can see how much things have changed.

“It won’t be opened until 2064, but one or two of the pupils (on Monday) said they’d like to come back to see it opened!”
