​​​​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:  Thursday March 5th, 6.00pm – 8.30pm.

Location: Top floor meeting room, The Whitaker, Haslingden Road Rawtenstall BB4 6RE
Speaker: Rob Carder Chair, Valley at Work

Its time for us to review Rossendale Business Awards and think about ho we can improve our celebration of the achievements of our local business community. Do we need to change some categories? Bring back some old favourites? Everything will be up for discussion at this interactive Valley at Work meeting.There will also be plenty of time to chat to everyone who attends as well as loads of updates.

Everyone is always welcome at a Valley at Work meeting. They are free of charge to attend. Just let us know if you’re planning to attend, please!
