Become part of history by sponsoring the Fareham Live Soundwave
Fareham Borough Council has an exclusive sponsorship opportunity for just 30 businesses to become part of history at the new community, arts and entertainment venue, Fareham Live. 'A Wave of Thanks' is a bespoke piece of wall art which will be displayed in the foyer. Each businesses name will be inscribed on a bar and put together to create a 'sound wave' design. This will become a permanent fixture at the venue and a fantastic way to advertise your business. Go to www.fareham.gov.uk/waveofthanks for more information on the packages available and how to sign up. Click here for a virtual tour of how Fareham Live will look .

Reduce your energy costs and carbon footprint - business learning and networking event
UK Businesses have been feeling the impact of rising energy prices and pressures from the Government to meet 2050 net-zero targets. In response, Fareham-based Edensprite & Yandiya Technologies are co-hosting an event to help other local entrepreneurs to protect their business in the long-term. At this free event, they will facilitate discussions to find out what net-zero means and talk around next-generation, low-carbon solutions to help reduce energy costs. A networking lunch will be provided for all pre-registered attendees. The event is free but places are limited and must be pre-booked, so it is strongly advised to book your place as soon as possible. Click here to book your place and know that a warm welcome awaits! For any questions or information about the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01329 556575.
