​​​​Valley at Work Meetings

We meet between 6pm and 8.30pm, at a local venue, on the first Wednesday of every month.

With the exception of the Rossendale Business Awards ceremony in November and the AGM in July, all our meetings are free of charge to attend (unless there is food), and everyone is welcome.

Our meetings are deliberately friendly and informal – there’s plenty of time to circulate and get to know everyone. You are not obliged to pitch your business or provide referrals for other attendees.

If you would like to come along to any meeting, or you would like to receive regular email updates, please contact enquiries@valleyatwork.co.uk and let us know.

Next Meeting:  Wednesday October 3rd, 6.00pm – 8.30pm.

Location: The Whitaker,  Haslingden Road, Rawtenstall BB4 6RE
Topic: The Next Rossendale Food & Drink Guide Starts Here
I know, it only seems like 5 minutes since the 2018 guide was published, but its time to start thinking about the next one! How can we improve it? Who should have been in the last one, but for some reason wasn’t included? Which new food & drink businesses have started up? Who has closed? All questions to be considered, along with many others at our next meeting. We’ll also take a look at ideas about ho to build on the success of the first guide with other food and drink related projects.

Everyone is welcome at this Valley at Work meeting. Its free to attend, and you can be assured of a friendly welcome!
