A new exhibition of what life was like through the eyes of Swaffham school children a quarter of a century ago has opened at the town’s museum.

The display, which opened on Saturday, features the contents of a time capsule buried in the grounds of the former South Greenhoe Middle School in 1991.

The capsule was opened during a summer fete held at the site, which is now the Swaffham Junior Academy, last month, as the picture above shows.

Youngsters are already preparing items for a new time capsule, which will be opened in the year 2041.

The exhibition is on until December. The museum is open from 10am to 4pm on weekdays and 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
