CARLYLE Gardens commemorated 25 years of community spirit, great parties and a luxury lifestyle at a special event last week.

Over 130 residents and guests attended the milestone celebration with special guests Deputy Mayor Bill Trevor and Cr Greg Barnes assisting with the cake cutting celebrations.

Residents and guests celebrated by watching a slideshow of the journey that the village has gone through from its establishment in 1991 to now.

Judy Wilkie, president of Carlyle Gardens said the village had seen plenty of changes over its 25 years including its refurbishment of the community hall.

Ms Wilkie said Carlyle Gardens was renowned for making its resident feel special.

"We like to throw amazing parties to celebrate the resident's birthdays to make it a night to remember," she said.

"The main highlights of the resident's experiences are the great parties."

"The most significant one being a pool party in 2010 for those residents who had not made their début yet."

Ms Wilkie said Carlyle Gardens liked to keep its residents involved in as many events as possible, including concerts, theme nights, movie nights, Halloween parties and the monthly sausage sizzle dinner.

"You can do as much or as little as you like," she said.

"Carlyle Gardens is a great place to reside to if you are looking for a friendly village to stay."
