Strelley Hall proved a good choice of venue. Its rural setting on the edge of Nottingham gave a direct turn in the countryside for nine “intrepid explorers”. The cold and sometimes muddy conditions didn't dampen the cheery networking or spoil the long distance views from the “catch my breath” stop. Post – walk nourishment was provided by Marian's bacon rolls, fruit and yoghurt and the meerkats were on cue to entertain us.
Great to provide an event for regular netwalkers to catch up and pleasing to provide a platform for new businesses and netwalkers.
Thank you all for coming – Yvonne of Hewitt Card

Its a relief when netwalks turn out well despite grizzly weather at this time of year. Especially so when using a new venue and when have new netwalkers attending. Fortunately the weather behaved itself as did the meerkats.
Really pleased to be doing a netwalk jointly with Matlock Business Club and from such a great starting location.
Come and join us for an afternoon's netwalk with Matlock Business Club on Thursday June 30 and explore an unusual part of Derbyshire. Refreshments are included.
Rendezvous at the secluded Cliff Farm (Peak Serenity) with walking shoes laced up for 4.30 pm. Take in the fantastic views and explore the surrounding area with its woods, stone circles and mock beggars hall. We'll return to Cliffe Farm around 5.45 pm for refreshments and to carry on networking.
After a welcome briefing we'll walk 2.5 miles along well defined paths and country lanes over typical Derbyshire hill farm country and through woods. A few styles will be encountered but these shouldn't pose a barrier as you'll be in a group that helps each other and that's determined to see the points of interest in this part of Derbyshire.

The spell of good weather made a glorious start to this years series of Netwalks. Shipley Country Park provided the location for a group of regular netwalkers and some new faces. There was certainly plenty of spring in our step as the walk was soon over before we knew it . Everybody enjoyed nature putting on a spring show and were in relaxed mood as the Derby Lodge cafe came into sight . The Netwalking group is gaining momentum and business relationships are getting built.
The Netwalk on Wednesday at Attenborough nature reserved went well weatherwise and networking wise.
The first autumn storm had blown up a few days before and created some damp conditions. The storm eased off Wednesday morning to give a fresh,clear start. Sensible footwear and well mainted paths gave walkers good traction to enjoy a figure of 8 route around the large ponds and along the River Trent. Despite flooding of one section a short diversion added interest through the village of Attenborough.
A pleasant mix of regulars and new faces for this networking event for the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce. Members enjoyed the walk and making networking contacts and I've appreciated their positive feedback and useful comments on how the concept can be developed further.
Early one bright fresh morning in September a group of business people set off walking through Shipley Country Park for a networking event; part of a series of Netwalking being run by Skylarks Activities for the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce.
Instead of being indoors, the networking took place outdoors hen the group talking as they walked through the scenic parkland at Shipley. The walkers turned back through Mapperley Nature Reserve and made a visit to the Derby Lodge Tea Rooms where refreshments were enjoyed in the garden.
The well defined routes and points of interest at Shipley made a smooth environment for business networking. The combination gave a new dimension to networking with people feeling free and easy to mix with others who had similar interests.
Members appreciated the event so much that they wanted to repeat it. A series of further Netwalks have been arranged for October, November and December.
