Beat the Street News

Dear Beat the Street player,

Welcome to this week’s update – please forward this email to anyone who is playing Beat the Street; schoolchildren, teachers, staff, parents etc!


We hope you’re enjoying Beat the Street! You have walked, cycled and run an amazing total of just over  70,000 miles.




All Saints CofE Primary School is in the lead on the overall points leaderboard and Ocker Hill Academy leads the average points leaderboard.  These teams are in the running for great prizes with the top three teams on each leaderboard receiving £1000, £500 and £250 respectively.


However, there’s still time to beat them and don’t forget that if you register your adult card, you can win a lucky tap prize, simply by tapping your card on a Beat Box!




There are triple points available on Easter Saturday (26th March) when a golden Beat Box will be on site at the Easter egg hunt at the Queens Square Shopping Centre, West Bromwich between 10am and 3pm.


Easter egg roll


Beat the Street is supporting the Warley Woods Community Trust Easter event on Easter Monday (28th March) which features an Easter Egg roll down the meadow’s long bank. Participants are invited to bring a hard-boiled egg to the Upper St Mary’s entrance of Warley Woods at 11am with prizes for the egg-roller that rolls the furthest.  Entry into all activities is £1 and there will be a bonus Beat Box on the day with double points available.


Last weekend


All good things must come to an end, and so to mark the end of the Beat the Street Sandwell competition, there will double points available on Beat Box number 55 at Friar Park Millenium Centre, Friar Park Rd, Wednesbury from Friday, 8th April from 8am to 5pm. Please note that you must tap another Beat Box before the bonus one to score double points.


Congratulations on being more active!


Did you know, the minimum recommended amount of physical activity for adults is 150 minutes per week and 60 minutes per day for children? That's where Beat the Street comes in. After Beat the Street took place in Hounslow in 2015, 80% of people said that it helped them be more active and 74% said that it had helped them feel healthier. How is Beat the Street helping you, your family or school feel healthier? Let us know!


Through initiatives like Beat the Street, the National Charity Partnership - a partnership between Diabetes UK, the British Heart Foundation and Tesco - hopes to inspire millions of people to eat better, get active and reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease.




This week, you’ll notice that the Beat Boxes will begin to make different noises when you tap them!  What noises have you heard?  What do you think of the Beat Box Hullabaloo?  Let us know!


Happy tapping!
