Torteval time capsule planned for Diamond Jubilee

Parishioners in Torteval are being asked what should be included in a time capsule being created to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The committee organising celebrations in the Guernsey parish wants to fill a 2ft (60cm) high stainless steel capsule with items from the area.

The capsule will then be put inside a glass cabinet in Torteval parish church and not opened until 2072.

Among the objects inside will be photos from the parish's scarecrow festivals.

The committee has also approved including letters from island dignitaries and artefacts from local companies.

Once it has been filled a date will be set for when the capsule will be sealed.
