THE weather has been un­pre­dictable in the Der­went Val­ley over the past month, but Glen Der­went is sure to be siz­zling at its fi­nal event of the year next week.

Glen Der­went, at New Nor­folk, is host­ing a Mid­sum­mer Twi­light Gath­er­ing on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 22.

Liz and Rob Virtue took over late last year, and have hosted reg­u­lar events at the prop­erty since.

The sum­mer gath­er­ing comes af­ter suc­cess­ful win­ter and spring-themed events.

“We’re just con­tin­u­ing a se­ries of sea­sonal gath­er­ings to try and bring peo­ple to­gether,” Mrs Virtue said.

“I’m very much look­ing forward to it.

“We just want to keep ex­pos­ing the prop­erty so peo­ple can en­joy it with us.”

Mu­sic will be pro­vided by DJ Mark and food and drinks by Fairy Flossie and Frothy Cof­fee.

“We’re just re­ally thrilled with the sup­port of the lo­cal com­mu­nity, and we are also get­ting a lot of sup­port for our tea room from fur­ther be­yond,” Mrs Virtue said.

“One of the rea­sons we’re invit­ing other food providers is so we can spend some time with some of the peo­ple who have sup­ported us this year.”

Team mem­ber Ruth Mont­gomery is ex­cited for the gath­er­ing.

“Liz al­ways plans bril­liant events and they’re al­ways a great suc­cess,” Ms Mont­gomery said.

En­try is free for the event, which will run from 6-10pm.

To RSVP, con­tact Mrs Virtue on 0427 480 057.
