Go Explore to find Beat the Street points


Players in community game urged to explore their town to find extra points this week

BEAT the Street players are tasked with exploring their town this weekend to find boxes offering triple points.

The location of the boxes giving out extra points in the popular free community game is being kept a secret.

The idea is for players to push on and get tapping even more, with just two weeks of the Harwich game left.

So far more than 4,500 players have travelled more than 89,000 miles tapping boxes.

This week, April 11 to 17, is Go Explore Week, with more special events being held with extra points at the mobile beat box.

Community Voluntary Services Tendring (CVST), which is running Beat the Street in Harwich, will be hosting a volunteering open day on Friday, April 12.

The event from 1pm to 3pm at the Dovercourt and Harwich Hub is for residents to learn new skills and find volunteering opportunities.

Players can also join the adults Parkrun on Saturday morning at 9am at Cliff Park, and the children’s Parkrun on Sunday at 9am.

The Harwich Redoubt Fort will be open from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday for residents to explore and get free entry if they show their Beat the Street card or app.

Bobbit’s Hole, at the rear of ASDA store, will be open for residents to explore on Sunday from 10am – 12pm.

Game Co-ordinator, Becky Dowling, physical activity capacity building officer for CVST, said: “With one week before Go Celebrate it’s time to explore your local area and gain double points in random locations around Harwich.

“We are really excited for people to enjoy more free activities we have planned for this week and to start exploring the amazing history of Harwich.

“We’ve had such a lot of fun so far in the game with some brilliant events and incredible participation from the players.

“This week CVST is hosting a volunteer day for people to learn new skills with crafts and activities for both children and adults, as well as find out about opportunities for volunteering in Harwich.

“Come to our activities and tap the triple points Beat Box to earn points and work your way up to the top of the leaderboard, before we sprint to the finish line with Go Celebrate week.”

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.
