What is Walking-4-Health?
Fareham Walking-4-Health is an accredited Healthy Walk scheme with Ramblers Walking for Health. Our walks are led by trained volunteer Walk Leaders and offer local people the opportunity to:
- walk at a pace they can manage
- improve their fitness
- enjoy the sociable company of others
Health Walks last between 30 and 90 minutes and suit people of varied abilities.

Tick Awareness Information
With summer temperatures bringing everyone into the sunshine, Community First Fareham is stepping up its advice to be ‘tick aware’ while spending time outdoors.
Ticks are often found in wooded areas or long grass and they can easily attach themselves to an animal or person as they brush by. They may be tiny but they can transmit bacteria that cause diseases, such as Lyme disease, so it’s important to cover up and be on the lookout for bites. Ticks are found in moist areas of dense vegetation in woodland, grassland, moorland, heathland and some urban parks and gardens. They can be found throughout the year but are most active between spring and autumn.
