Go Active and get more points


Week four of community game is all about getting more active

A FREE taster day, Tai Chi, Dr Bike sessions and lots more is on offer this week with Go Active week in Beat the Street.

After a fun week of Go Wild for the free community game, residents have now covered more than 71,400 miles in total tapping the 40 beat boxes stationed around Harwich and Dovercourt.

Go Active week has now begun and will run until 10th April with events including two BoxFit sessions on April 5, one at the Band Stand in Cliff Park at 7am to 8am, and one at the Dovercourt and Harwich Hub at 10.30am to 11.30am.

Residents are invited to join Community Voluntary Services Tendring (CVST) for a free taster day of physical activities, 10am – 2pm on April 6 at the Dovercourt and Harwich Hub.

Sunday April 7 will see a free Dr Bike session for players to get their bikes checked and fixed, 10am – 1pm at Morrisons, Iconfield park, Garland Road and the Harwich and Dovercourt Rugby Club will be having a rugby training taster session at 9.30am – 11.30am.

In the afternoon of April 7, there will be an outdoor gym session at Cliff Park, 2pm to 3pm, for residents to learn the ins and outs of using outdoor gym equipment effectively and safely.

Explore some of the parks around Harwich on April 8 with a BoxFit session in Parkeston Welfare Park, 10am to 11am, and a Jazzercise session, 9.30am to 10.30am, at Park Pavilion.

Game co-ordinator, Becky Dowling, physical activity capacity building officer for CVST, said: “As half term comes and we have had more than 4,490 players tapping, it’s time to get out more with Go Active week.

“We are pleased so many people are getting active already by going for walks, runs and cycles to tap each Beat Box in Harwich.

“Like all the other weeks of Beat the Street we are excited for all the activities we have planned.

“Activities ranging from BoxFit sessions, Tai Chi sessions, Dr Bike sessions and even a taster day for you to try many different activities.

“All the events and activities will have a mobile BeatBox for players to tap to earn triple points.

“So get active this week and carry on tapping to gain more points.”

Beat the Street in Harwich and Dovercourt is delivered in partnership with Tendring District Council, Essex County Council, Active Essex, Community Voluntary Services Tendring (CVST), and Intelligent Health. 

The game is to help get residents to be active in their area, getting points when walking, running, and cycling around to tap the boxes.
