Go Wild week in Beat the Street


FREE Tai Chi, Childrens roller skating, outdoor gym sessions and more are being held this week with extra points up for grabs in Harwich’s Beat the Street game. 

Go Wild week is in full swing, running until April 3, and will allow players to earn double points on boxes in green spaces and along the beach this Easter weekend. 

There will also be a range of activities held throughout the Go Wild theme week. 

On March 29, there will be a Tai Chi session at Cliff Park Bandstand from 10.30am to 11.30am. 

Harwich Lifeboat Museum will be open for people to find out the story of the lifeboat services in Harwich on March 29 and 30, from 11am – 2pm.  

Also on March 30 there will be an outdoor gym session, 10am -11am, at Parkeston Welfare Park, and an egg hunt at St Michael’s Church in Ramsey from 10am to 12noon. 

The Lighthouse Sports and Social Hub will host a ParkPlay session on March 30 from 10am to 12noon, and Children’s Kangoos and roller skating from 12pm to 1pm. 

Game Co-ordinator, Becky Dowling, physical activity capacity building officer for Community Voluntary Service Tendring (CVST), said: “We had a big success during Go Travel week for Beat the Street with more than 4,300 players covering more than 50,000 miles since the game began. 

“And this week looks to be even better with a host of activities that will have mobile Beatboxes for triple points. 

“With Tai chi sessions, Childrens roller skating, egg hunt, seaside explorers and many more activities, we are excited to get more people tapping and give away more prizes.  

“There are now three weeks left, so go wild and get tapping.” 

Other events this week will include the Seaside Explorers at Harwich Beach in front of the Sailing Club on April 2, from 10am to 11am, and Harwich Runners from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.  

You can also take part in a special Mind Mid and North East Essex bingo game – pick up your card from the Dovercourt and Harwich Hub in High Street, Dovercourt and complete five of the activities. 

On April 2, hand your completed card back to the hub between 1pm and 5pm for triple 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.
