NI water Murder Mystery 12Newcastle’s Burrendale Hotel was the scene of mystery and intrigue last weekend, as NI Water, in partnership with the Mourne Mountains Landscape Partnership, hosted a unique Silent Valley-themed murder mystery event.
  The event centred on fictional ‘silent but deadly’ happenings at the reservoir as construction work ended in the early 1930s, and attendees certainly rose to the occasion, with period costume a necessity.

  Celine Rodgers of NI Water, one of the key organisers, said, ‘‘Silent Valley is one of NI Water’s key assets, open to the public to enjoy as a rural retreat but also as one of our most important water supply sites. “We are always delighted to promote it to the wider public, and the new and interesting idea of a Silent Valley-themed murder mystery night was a great opportunity to raise awareness of the Valley, both as a source of leisure and in more practical terms as a source of water supply for much of County Down.
  “We are very grateful to the local community and to NI Water staff for supporting this event so strongly, and for getting into the spirit of the night with 1930s’-style costumes and music. Our thanks are also due to our partners in the Mourne Mountains Landscape Partnership, who cherish Silent Valley as much as we do and who are always happy to see it flourishing.
