The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - People In The Valley -

THE ‘bush dance’ themed Hopfest held on the week­end has been de­clared a huge suc­cess.

Der­went Val­ley Band man­ager Layton Hod­getts was thrilled with the at­ten­dance.

‘‘It was an out­stand­ingly suc­cess­ful evening,’’ Mr Hod­getts said.

‘‘About 150 peo­ple from near and far came to the event with peo­ple danc­ing and en­joy­ing them­selves un­til late in the evening. There were peo­ple of all ages from all walks of life. Bethanie Kear­ney was call­ing the dances and she made it easy for them all to join in.’’

A team of vol­un­teers, led by Ma­ree Reiper, spent Satur­day dec­o­rat­ing the hall and pre­par­ing a feast for all.

The event has been held as a fundraiser for the con­cert band for the past five years. Mr Hod­getts said he was ex­tremely grate­ful to all those who sup­ported the event.
