Guardian makes the news! thumbnailBallymena Guardian editor, Jim Flanagan, signing a copy of the newspaper by Ballymena Nursery pupils, Levi, Kruz, Brian, Harry, Grace and Tyler for their ‘time capsule’, watched by principal, Mrs Jacqueline Coulter and teacher, Mrs Claire McGall.

A COPY of the Ballymena Guardian signed by editor, Jim Flanagan, is part of a package of items of interest to be 'locked' in a time capsule to mark the 50th anniversary of Ballymena Nursery school.
The popular school, which recently celebrated its half century with a special 'themed' birthday party, will have the capsule stored for safekeeping in the Braid Town Hall.
There are long term plans to get the popular nursery school a new purpose-built building fit for the 21st century.
In many ways the school is a victim of its own success, catering for 104 pupils in separate morning and afternoon sessions.
The time capsule will not be buried at present in case the school moves to a new site in he future.
Principal Mrs Jacqueline Coulter said: "We are delighted with the variety of items in our time capsule.
“The community has been so supportive of our 50th anniversary celebrations and we have really enjoyed putting the capsule together."
Special items include a specially signed photographed picture of Ballymena freeman and Hollywood superstar, Liam Neeson, and a rugby shirt from Ulster star, Andy Warwick who attended the school.
There is also a signed football shirt from Ballymena United football club.
