Beat the Street Wokingham winners from Floreat Montague Primary School

Wokingham’s Beat the Street challenge has come to an amazing conclusion this week with 6,263 participants racking up 151,531 active travel miles!

 

Beat the Street transformed the town centre, Woosehill and Finchampstead into a real-life game for six weeks and challenged people to ditch the car and to walk, cycle or wheel to school to improve congestion and air quality.

 

Many schools were able to use the Beat the Street to help them attain their Modeshift Stars awards, which is the centre of excellence for schools and businesses who deliver effective travel plans.

'Thanks to all for taking part'


Cllr Pauline Jorgensen, executive member for highways and transport said: “It has been an amazing Beat the Street for the area and we’d like to thank everyone who took part. 


We have seen such passion and commitment from players who have got in touch to tell us their stories about how they have loved the game and that they will be sorry to see the Beat Boxes go!

 

“We hope that everyone will continue to incorporate active travel into their daily lives.”

 

Beat the Street is being delivered by Intelligent Health on behalf of Wokingham Borough Council and My Journey Wokingham, and is funded by Defra.
