Fareham Walking-4-Health

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.

For more information about Ramblers Walking for Health please visit www.walkingforhealth.org.uk (this is an external link).

 

Start Walking

Fareham Walking-4-Health leads a variety of walks in all parts of Fareham Borough.

Descriptions of the walks and a diary of dates that each walk is being led are updated every two months. You will find a link below to view our latest programme. Or you are welcome to collect a copy from the Community First Fareham office at 163 West Street in Fareham town centre.

Download the December and January Programme here

New walkers should complete a walker registration form.  You can get one from your walk leader or download it here.  You will be invited to complete an anonymous Health Questionnaire (optional).  Your information is kept confidential and recorded on a secure database. (Please see our privacy policy for more details.)

Registered walkers automatically receive a current walk schedule by email.

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.
