A wooden bench has been placed in the Waterloo Action Centre garden to recognise the work of the long-standing and active Waterloo residents Lou and Len Shepperd.
The couple, who live in Windmill Walk and have been married for 58 years, were invited to sit on the seat during the ceremony marking "their work and commitment to WAC over many years".
Waterloo poet Louise O'Rourke read a specially written five verse poem called Full Bloom which includes the lines:
To celebrate your marriage
This bench is in your name
In well earned admiration
And well deserved acclaim
Afterwards there was a lunch where the pudding took the form of a special cake featuring two love birds. Those present included Vauxhall MP Kate Hoey and Waterloo rector Canon Richard Truss.
