The Cober Capsule - a 50 Year Time Capsule

We will be burying a 50 year time capsule on the Penrose Estate to be opened on 5th July 2067. Funds Raised will be used to support the Birth and Baby Appeal for the refurbished maternity unit at Treliske Hospital


Do you remember 1967, 50 years ago. No internet, no Facebook, Israels 6 day war, NASA launches a lunar orbiter, Beatles release Sgt Pepper, A litre of petrol cost around 6p! A Ford Cortina cost £749 and an average house cost £3,740. Well what will be happening in 2067 50 years time. What if you could at least tell your descendants or future workers or future school pupils what life was like in 2017 and what you think it will be like in 2067.
