Go Celebrate the last week of Beat the Street


Double points celebrate the last days of community game

DOUBLE points on every box will help players celebrate the final week of the free community game Beat the Street.

Players have covered more than 110,000 miles so far in the six week game, which sees them tap the beat boxes installed around Harwich and Dovercourt to gain points.

In the Go Explore Week, which ended on Wednesday, players were able to visit sites around Harwich for free such as the Redoubt Fort, Beacon Hill Fort, Harwich Museum, and Bobbits Hole nature reserve and pick up triple points.

They were also invited to take part in

the Harwich Park Runs.

On Friday, April 12, Community Voluntary Services Tendring (CVST) which is running the game, saw players attended their Go Volunteer event.

Residents were able to learn self-defence skills, knitting and crocheting skills and crafts such as making bird feeders.

Game Co-ordinator, Becky Dowling, physical activity capacity building officer for CVST, said: “We are so impressed with how many people have been tapping over the past five weeks and how far they have travelled too.

“Go Volunteer was a great day, bringing together players and showcasing activities as well as how to get involved in volunteering in your community.

“We all had great fun with hula hooping and the other activities.

“We still have activities and events to look forward to so there is still time to work your way up the leaderboards and to win prizes.

“And for Go Celebrate week there are double points on every beat box so every tap you make is important.

“I will still be offering triple points on my mobile beat box at our events before the big celebration next Wednesday.”

Starting for Go Celebrate week, and continuing for six months after Beat the Street, residents will have the chance to find and hand in green painted shells and stones, with a white B on, to the Dovercourt and Harwich Hub for a Beat the Street prize.

Also this week, Parkeston Railway Club will be hosting a Messy Church with crafts, activities, songs, and stories on April 20 at 10am to 11.30am.

On April 23, residents will have the chance to visit the ex-Trinity House lightship vessel LV18 at The Quay between 4pm and 5pm.

And the end of Beat the street will be celebrated with an end of the game party, on April 24 at beach hut 161 in Dovercourt from 1pm to 5pm.

Becky added: “We’re hoping to see as many people as possible at the end of game party where we will celebrate the achievements of players and keep tapping until the very end.”

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.
