What would you bury in time capsule under new swimming pool?

A tourist map of north Norfolk, a receipt showing the cost of essential items or even a copy of this newspaper are all ideas of things people could suggest to fill a new time capsule.
North Norfolk District Council is to bury the capsule on the grounds of The Reef, the new swimming pool and leisure centre it is building in Sheringham to replace the former Splash leisure centre.
It is hoped the capsule will give a snapshot of the area at the time of The Reef's completion, as well as providing an archive of the construction project.
The council said: "This will provide a record for a future generation to discover when the building comes to the end of its’ operational life decades in the future.
"Local residents are welcome to join the local schools in Sheringham in offering items that best represent life in 2021 to the time capsule. Such items might include an up-to-date local newspaper, tourist map of the area or receipt displaying the costs of everyday items."
Suggestions can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by May 30.
