A time capsule has been buried in the grounds of the new St Catherine’s hospice being built by Barnes Construction at Pease Pottage. The event took place on Thursday 6 July and marks 40 years since the hospice first began providing palliative and end of life care to the local community in 1983.
During a short ceremony, the time capsule was buried in an internal courtyard that will become a reflective garden within the impressive new hospice building, which is due to open at the end of the year.
The hope is that the time capsule will be uncovered in another 40 years’ time when St Catherine’s celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2063. When the reflective courtyard is completed, there will be a plaque highlighting where it is located for future patients, families, volunteers and staff to see.
Along with representatives from the project team, other attending the ceremony on the day included some of the charity’s Trustees, members, staff, volunteers and a representative from Friends of Sussex Hospices, Kathy Gore, an independent charity that raises funds to support the running costs of the 13 hospice care providers in Sussex.
The whole St Catherine’s team would like to say a massive thank you for the Barnes input to our time capsule event yesterday. The site looked superb and with last minute scaffold drops and plastering details everyone really got to see a whole new level of how the building will be. It’s fair to say that the anticipation for our new home is growing and we’re so grateful for the way your team is enabling us to share that journey.Paul Rycroft, New Build Delivery and Collaboration Director, St Catherine’s Hospice
