The John Muir Group at Uddingston Grammar received a time capsule from Supercounty as part of the Celebrating Lanarkshire 2013 project.

Head of Supercounty John Scott said: “Celebrating Lanarkshire 2013 aims to celebrate and recognise the region’s achievements over the past 200 years.

“A huge part of the project is looking at our heritage and what a wonderful way to preserve a little piece of 2013 of through a time capsule.

“The John Muir Group at Uddingston Grammar has been exceptionally supportive and active during 2013, using the bicentenary celebrations of David Livingstone to form an interdisciplinary project.

“This included art, history and geography as well the core activities of The John Muir Trust, with the young people dedicating their free time to tackle environmental issues from flower planting to litter campaigns as well as educating the wider community.

“I’m delighted to hear that the young people will continue with the ethos of the John Muir Trust in addition to supporting Lanarkshire.”

Uddingston Grammar teacher Anne Marie Galbraith added: “Supercounty has always been very supportive of the activities undertaken by The John Muir Group.

“The young people have been so committed and passionate about becoming involved in Celebrating Lanarkshire 2013 campaign and to have a new project to focus upon is a wonderful addition to the key activity plan.

“It is hoped that the group will now collectively work with the wider community to encapsulate a little bit of Uddingston for future generations.

“The pupils have a whole range of ideas and sub-projects in mind – they most certainly are keen to leave a positive footprint for the future.”
