50 years a Borough

What are we doing to celebrate?

We kicked off our celebrations a little early with our new golden Christmas lights display, with cools and warm tones, along with our magnificent golden illuminated present under the performance stand in West Street. This is part of a five year contract with The Festive Lighting Company and the previous Christmas lights will be recycled.

Throughout 2024, the Council will be using a special 50th anniversary logo and organised events and activities will have a golden theme, so that residents and businesses can celebrate this milestone together. 

The Council will also be supporting its district centres once again through its Live Love Local campaign. New banner flags with a golden colour scheme will be going up around the Borough and special 50th anniversary flags will be flying in Fareham West Street.

We will be updating this page throughout the year with the latest events, celebrations, community activities and competitions, so watch this space for more information. 

You can read about some of Fareham's milestones from the last 50 years here. 

How can you get involved?

Finding Fareham Photos: 

Fareham residents are the heart of the Borough, so the Council is asking for everyone to send in their pictures from the Borough taken in the last 50 years.

You can do this by uploading them to Facebook, tagging @FarehamBC; by emailing them to or by bringing in physical photographs to the Civic Offices in Fareham to be scanned. There will be a post box for photographs in reception, but please be sure to include your name and contact details so we can let you know when the photos will be ready to collect.  Also remember include details of what the photograph is showing and any other interesting information.

Once we have enough photos collected, we will create a special gallery page on our website to showcase these historic moments.
