Collecting Memories of Lockdown Life


To mark the one-year anniversary of the first national lockdown, Walton Charity is creating a time capsule to help future generations understand more about life during Covid-19.

The time capsule, to be buried in the gardens of Mayfield, one of our sheltered housing properties, will include a collection of items that symbolise lockdown life including hand-crafted rainbows, face masks, PPE and – of course – toilet rolls!

Our sheltered housing residents and volunteers from our Community Allotment have contributed recipes, letters and poems reflecting on their life during 2020.

As well as creating a historical record of what it was like to live and work during a national lockdown, the project will also capture the ways Walton Charity and its partners have been supporting the local community during the pandemic.
