Time capsule unearthed at Malden House

Ten years on from its burial, a time capsule has been unearthed at Hartford Care’s Malden House care home in Sidmouth, Devon. Many memories were uncovered, including a selection of newspapers from 2013, photographs of previous residents, pictures by local school children and mobile phones.


Tabitha Donovan, Home Manager at Malden House, says: “It was great fun opening up the time capsule, many of our team members were present when we buried it ten years ago, so it’s brought back wonderful memories of some of our past residents.


“2013 was also the year Prince George was born, so we had copies of the national newspapers with his first photograph. It was interesting to see what the local school children thought life would be in 2023 from their pictures of the future, probably not quite as advanced as most thought – although it’s amazing how mobile phones have adapted over just ten years!”


Malden House is rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Located in the popular town of Sidmouth in East Devon, the original house dates back to 1820 and has been thoughtfully redesigned to incorporate many original features while providing a safe and comfortable home for its residents. Malden House offers dementia care, residential care, respite breaks, day care and end of life care across its 19 bedrooms.
