WATCH: Students help Rugby law firm bury time capsule

Students and teachers from schools in the area helped to bury a time capsule to mark a Rugby law firm’s heritage.

Brethertons Solicitors celebrated the move from its home of 160 years on Church Street to its new eco-friendly office in Clifton Road by putting together a collection of items for future generations to discover.

The capsule contained copies of school magazines, the Rugby Advertiser and the Beano, a glass bauble, laminated photos, booklets, prospectus, pictures, ties, badges, cards and newsletters.

Richard Pell, senior partner at the firm, said: “Brethertons can trace its roots back over 200 years, the firm’s history has been closely aligned with Rugby’s own history, which is why it is so great to have left a legacy here and we hope when the time capsule is opened, they can get a taste of life in 2014.

“We have also included a copy of the deeds for the new building as well as some memorabilia which was unearthed when we packed away our desks at the old offices.

“We even found some ‘Brethertons Beer’ which was brewed especially for the firm to celebrate the Millennium.”

He added: “We are very excited about our new home and look forward to welcoming new and existing clients. “The new offices will allow us to accommodate more staff, including specialist commercial and private client departments, but still keep us at the heart of the Rugby community and enable us to offer a service accessible to all.”
