Action Oldham Fund to host first ‘net-walk’ in Saddleworth hills

A first ever networking walk is being hosted in the Saddleworth hills by the Action Oldham Fund.

The Fund, which is celebrating its fourth birthday this month, is hosting the ‘net-walk’ on Saturday, September 30 from 10am-2pm.

They aim to bring together adventurous men and women of the local business community for an enjoyable walk in the breath-taking beauty of Saddleworth, followed by a hot lunch.

Clare Taylor, Fund Development Coordinator, said: “The ‘net-walk’ is a fun and energising way to spend quality time with business colleagues, and also develop new connections.

“Take a step away from your desk and the usual meeting rooms, see fresh perspectives and clear thinking emerge as you build genuine relations in wide open space.”

The ‘net-walk’ starts at the Cross Keys Inn, then takes in Running Hill lane and walk past the groups of quarries known as Running Hill Pits, a popular playground for climbers, and then up to the trig point on Broadstone Hill.

It will then follow the ridge line over to Aldermans Hill passing by Slade Rocks, where the view takes in the Chew Valley skyline and surrounding hills, with the valley and its three reservoirs.

They will head on to the memorial at Pots and Pans before finally descending to Pobgreen and onto a warming meal back at the Cross Key Inn.

The event is kindly sponsored by David Adetona, Saint James Place. To book your place now, go online.

The Fund supports good causes, particularly smaller, local groups, across the borough with grants, so they can make a real difference to local lives.

With the help of generous people and businesses they have funded more than 80 community projects in the last four years, distributing over £330,000. Find out more about the Action Oldham Fund on their website.
