  • School children think 50 years in the future for time capsule burial!

    AmicusHorizon's Regis Gate development was the site of a time capsule burial by pupils from Regis Manor Primary school. The housing association worked with the children, aged 5-11, and construction firm Rydon to create a time capsule to tell future Sittingbourne residents what life is like in 2014. The time capsule was buried in the garden of the Regis Gate development, which will be home to residents over the age of 55, and will be finished later this year.
