A COPY of the Free Press is to be a part of history - having been buried in a time capsule in a Doncaster park.

Dozens of donated items have been put inside a container and placed underneath play equipment at Sandall Park.

It also marked the celebration of a £15,000 funding grant from The Veolia Environmental Trust to build a new adventure play area in the popular park.

Sandra Crabree, chairman of the Friends of Sandall Park, said: “This time capsule will tell people what things were like in 2012.

“It’s quite spooky doing a time capsule, wondering who will find it, what year it will be, what will the world be like then.”

There are plans for the friends group to hold an official launch event of the completed park next Thursday.
