Valley at Work is a business association organised by small businesses for small businesses. Whether you run a business in Rossendale, or trade in Rossendale, or are planning a to start a business in Rossendale you are welcome to join us at our regular meetings.
Here you can find out who is who in Rossendale business, connect to local suppliers and find new contacts, ideas and help, all over a coffee and a biscuit. We have great guest speakers each month who give up their time to offer advice in their own areas of expertise to help the rest of us.
Valley at Work is inclusive (everyone is welcome), friendly and aims to be a point of help and communication with and between local businesses.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
Next Meeting: Wednesday October 3rd, 6.00pm – 8.30pm.

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!
