Fareham Walking 4 Health New Programme
Welcome to your new Fareham Walking 4 Health walk programme for April and May. Our volunteer Walk Leaders have sprung into action once again to offer you a Spring full of fantastic walking opportunities. You have a fantastic selection to choose from morning, afternoon and evening plus weekday and weekend. Why not try something new for Spring?
You will see from our Walk Rating Key that we have introduced a new category of walks bearing the Forgetmenot flower of Dementia Friendly Fareham.
We welcome new Walk Leader Jane who is bringing back our much-loved Fareham Leisure Centre walk. Jane came from a background in engineering and teaching before becoming involved with dementia while caring for her mother. From running a local support group she became a dementia awareness trainer for staff in Care Homes. Jane is the Alzheimer’s Society Local Area Coordinator for SE England. In 2016, Jane setup the charity Dementia Friendly Hampshire. As part of this work she has trained as a Health Walk leader.
The W3 walk is offered once a month on the second Friday of the month and meets at 1.30pm.
Congratulations to Walk Leader Baz who has just been signed up by Blind Veterans UK as a Walking Companion. His experience with Fareham Walking 4 Health has helped to spring-board him into this new role. Don’t miss the chance to walk with Baz in South Fareham. His W61 route to Fort Fareham moves to early evenings in May.
Thank you to Dave who regularly steps in to cover walks for other Walk Leaders in both Fareham and Gosport. Take a look at the Gosport programme:
