As the Covid-19 outbreak has a huge effect on all our lives, and the world we inhabit gets smaller, we have decided to make the Fareham Heritage Trail Map available for FREE download from today.
The Fareham Heritage Trail Map was created in 2016 after workshops with the local community (you can find out more via our Projects page) and provided a journey through the borough’s history, from Portchester to Swanwick, much of it acessible on foot.
It recently dawned on us that as people are moving around on foot and exploring their local area more than usual the map could provide a welcome accompaniment to daily exercise and offer a distraction from what’s going on in the world, and provide an opportunity to learn more about the rich history of Fareham Borough.
The map can be downloaded as a PDF below, and on our homepage. Although it is free, as a not for profit hit hard by the pandemic we welcome donations, and you can do so via the Donate button below
Live Art Local CIC/ Sticks Gallery would love to let you all in on a little secret………
A few months ago we applied for some funding to run a series of workshops examining the history of Fareham borough with older, isolated people living in the borough; families with disabled children and adults with learning disabilities. These workshops would culminate in an exhibition and the publication of a new heritage trail map for Fareham.
We are very pleased and excited to announce that on Friday we received confirmation that we had been successful in our grant application. The workshops will run this summer and will be a chance for our chosen groups to get creative, make new friends, learn new skills, find out about Fareham’s history and produce an exhibition and history trail they can feel proud of.
After publication the heritage trail will be available to buy and all monies from the sale of the map will be divided between Live Art Local CIC and charities/groups that help those groups working on the project.
We will be posting more information in due course
