A Coleg Cambria and Nightingale House Time Capsule

In a memorable ceremony, a time capsule crafted by Coleg Cambria was sealed into the walls of the new Inpatient Unit, currently under construction at Nightingale House Hospice.

Wrexham Mayor Andy Williams and 10-year-old George Popple, whose father received care at the hospice, played significant roles in sealing the capsule inside the wall.

Eluned Griffiths, Chair of Trustees, highlighted the event’s significance: “Palliative care and hospices, especially Nightingale House, never stay still. But, the completion of the new Inpatient Unit is an important milestone.

Inside the time capsule were messages of love, support and remembrance from the community, staff, volunteer and trustee photos. Poems written by patients in the Wellbeing Programme, newspapers, a Caffi Cwtch menu, and also TACP’s architectural drawings of the new Inpatient unit. Amongst other things which includes a pair of bunny ears from Nightingale House’s famous Midnight Walk.

Sealing the time capsule behind a wall, George tightened the final screw, ensuring its preservation for generations to come.

The new facilities will enable Nightingale House to continue to provide high-level care to the community for years to come. Construction of the new Inpatient Unit is expected to conclude by the 8th December 2023.
