​​​​Valley at Work Meetings

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

With the exception of the Rossendale Business Awards ceremony in December 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 February 6th, 6.00pm – 8.30pm.

Location: Horse and Bamboo Theatre, Waterfoot
Topic: Rossendale Food & Drink Guide 2019

Speaker: Rob Carder, Chair Valley at Work

We are working on getting the new edition of the Food & Drink Guide ready. A shortlist has been produced of local businesses with high food hygiene ratings and strong customer feedback on Trip Advisor and Facebook. We are working on getting their permission to include them in the guide. At this meeting, we will reveal the shortlist and report on the latest position. We will also have a discussion on who is not on the shortlist but should be included in the guide. A tour of The Boo is also on the agenda.

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