The use of vintage imagery on this website
is intended to lend a light hearted look
and feel both to the website, and to the act
of walking itself, as it alludes to a time
when cars where less prevalent
and walking was not only a common
pastime, but the customary way for most of us
to get from A to B. As indeed it still is
in many parts of the world still, walking
was the norm and as a result, we were all
a lot healthier for it.
However, NWSW recognises that in using
vintage & period imagery, with the intention
to amuse and bring a lighter touch,
these images do not reflect the multicultural
society we now live in . .
NWSW is committed to inclusivity
and welcomes all . .
"I thoroughly enjoyed the netwalking session I went on with Rosalind and WOTB. A refreshing way to meet people, not only was it a great way to network but it also felt like a good healthy thing to do. I have been to a lot of networking events and find they can be awkward, static and difficult to meet and talk to people.
This netwalk completely eradicated any of those issues.
You didn't have to worry about approaching people or what to talk about as all of that was prompted for you which meant you could just concentrate on talking to people and making connections."
