Central Coast Kids Day Out (CCKDO) has extended the deadline for contributions to its exciting Time Capsule project until February 9, giving Coasties the chance to be part of the region’s history.

“The Time Capsule was an idea that was created out of the fact that Central Coast Kids Day Out was regretfully cancelled as an annual event last year, for the first time in 21 years, due to the COVID pandemic,” the committee said.

“While that was so very disappointing, we undertook a number of activities and projects, smaller in number than the regular KDO but nonetheless equally as exciting and we believe helpful and important.

“As part of our endeavours, we are undertaking the Time Capsule community project.”

The capsule is to be interred at the official opening of the revamped Leagues Club Park early this year and will be dug up in 2070.

The committee is inviting families to contribute to the Time Capsule by way of written recollections (which can be as short as a couple of sentences), poems, drawings, paintings (no larger than A4 size) and photographs.

“Owing to the dimensions of the capsule, the contributions will need to be flat and no larger than A4, and, given we cannot be sure of the technology that will be available in 2070, we will be reliant on graphic contributions,” the committee said.

Especially welcome are thoughts on the impacts of COVID-19.

“Just imagine what the community and the world will be like in 2070 and how they will love to read all about what happened in 2020,” the committee said.
