WYLYE Lodge in Wilton celebrated its silver anniversary on Saturday with a party for residents and their families.

The lodge, which has 26 self-contained units for elderly and disabled people, was opened by Prince Charles in 1987.

Celia Rolls has lived there ever since and she was joined by fellow residents and local dignitaries for the party held at Wilton Community Centre.

Wylye Lodge is now owned by Habinteg Housing and the residents, who are aged between 30 and 87, enjoy a busy social programme including cheese and wine parties, coffee mornings and a Jubilee party in the summer.
