Residents helped create a display called 'A Village Goes to War' which focuses on Ascot's involvement in WWI and its tribute to the local men who fought in the trenches.

The talk also offered many residents a chance to remember the war, including Hilda Woolgar who is 98 and spoke of her father's anecdotes from his time in the war.

Nicola Humphries, home manager at Larkland House, said: "Although WWI might not have affected them directly, many residents at Larkland House grew up hearing war stories from their parents and grandparents.

“Carla’s history talk offered the perfect opportunity to reminisce, and the display proved to be very popular with residents, especially Hilda. It was fantastic to see her face light up when she talked about her father and shared these fascinating stories. We’d like to say a big thank you to Carla for such a special afternoon.”
