THERE was pride in a town’s 200th anniversary as a residential home pulled out all the stops to celebrate the milestone.

Red, white and blue adorned Green Meadows in Denmead and residents took part in a variety of activities themed around the Battle of Waterloo.

The open day at the care home tied in with the Waterlooville 200 celebrations, which take place today.

Clare Jefferson-Jones, project manager of Waterlooville 200, dropped in to talk to residents about the history of the town.

Sheila Harrop, who works at Green Meadows, said: ‘A lot of the residents could remember the pictures she was showing from days gone by. It’s started off conversations and there was a lot of reminiscing.’

The home also held a memorial service to remember the fallen.
