WOULD you call Fareham the town with something for everyone?
Or perhaps you would prefer to call it the market town with more? Maybe Fareham is a town full of history and heart?
Fareham Borough Council is considering three straplines to use on a website which will launch at the same time Whiteley Shopping Centre opens.
Traders told council officers at a business meeting earlier this year that they would like to see Fareham town centre better represented online.
They requested that the council create a website that does not look like a traditional council website.
In an attempt to boost business, they would like to see shops and businesses represented on a friendly, easy-to-use site that shoppers can browse.
As part of the progress of this site, the council have been considering straplines.
Project manager Colin Mitchell said that he was keen to hear opinions on the three carefully selected lines.
The slogans are:
Fareham – the market town with more
Discover Fareham – something for everyone
Fareham town centre – history and heart

Mr Mitchell said: ‘What is Fareham’s unique selling point? What can Fareham be known for?
‘That’s what we have been searching for and trying to encapsulate with a slogan.’
Mr Mitchell said that the strapline would not be going out to public consultation because of time restraints, but that he was open to hear opinions from anyone about their preferences.
The council would like to launch the site in May and a public consultation would hold up the proceedings.
Leader of Fareham Borough Council Sean Woodward said: ‘The traders like to see action and they have seen it.
‘We will have dealt with parking issues and created the website by the time Whiteley happens.’
