Netwalking for Business comes out of winter hibernation for members of Midlothian and East Lothian Chamber of Commerce (MELCC) in April.

It’s a unique concept which provides interrupted talk time with like-minded business people while surrounded by inspirational landscapes.

The latest walk is a circular route in Newbattle Woods. This is described as a great river valley walk through woodlands.

The meeting point is Newbattle Abbey College car park at 2pm on Wednesday, April 11 for a quick briefing. The walk will take around two hours.

George Archibald, joint chief executive of Midlothian and East Lothian Chamber of Commerce said: “Netwalking helps develop new business relationships, reflect upon your own business, generate new ideas and it helps you relax, de-stress and re-focus.”

Business After Hours is a two-year-old concept which is proving really popular.

The April visit is to Box-It Scotland on Wednesday, April 18 from 5pm to 7pm.

It is a joint event with Bright Green Business and is designed to give local businesses an opportunity to meet informally for networking and light refreshments.

It is also ideal for businesses who are unable to attend usual daytime events.

Box-It Scotland are a leading document management company offering a fully-integrated solution for both digital and paper-based documents. They are based at Spittalrigg Farm near Haddington EH41 3SU.

Both events are open to members and non-members and the Box-It visit is free. Full details are available from MELCC on 0131 603 5040.
