Take a netwalk

How about this for work life balance?
work bit is chatting about business and making/strengthening your connections with local business people
the life bit is enjoying some fabulous scenery and getting some exercise by walking 2.5 miles.
the balance bit is eating cake afterwards!

So this is netwalking.  Try it with Matlock Business Club on Thursday June 30 and explore an unusual part of Derbyshire. Refreshments (that's the cake bit) 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 by netwalking leader Paul Hunt from Skylark Activities ('ll walk 2.5 miles along well defined paths and country lanes over typical Derbyshire hill farm country and through woods. A few stiles 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.

Directions : Post Code for Google Maps and satnavs : DE45 1LL

Sounds like a great idea! Sorry I can't make it as I do volunteer dog walking at the Ark on Thursday afternoons, so will be all walked out! Hope it goes well though,
