The Beat the Street game is set to launch in Burnley!

The game takes place from 15th September to 27th October and is open to anyone of any age who would like to take part.  Children use a fob which will be provided by participating primary schools, and adults can pick up a free card from one of the distribution points listed on the Beat the Street Burnley website.

Beat the Street Burnley is brought to you by Burnley Together with the Canal & River Trust.  It is delivered by Intelligent Health.  Burnley Together works in partnership with Burnley Council, Calico Homes, Lancashire County Council, Burnley Leisure, Burnley FC in the Community, BPRCVS and other partners across the public, private, and voluntary sectors to create a central community hub.

Initially established to help and support residents across the borough during the coronavirus outbreak with everyday needs, Burnley Together has become a pivotal point of contact for support enquiries across a wide range of issues.

Paul Foster, Deputy Chief Executive at Burnley Leisure and Culture said: “It’s free to take part in Beat the Street. It’s quick and easy to sign up, and it’s open to everyone regardless of age, ability or background. It’s so important to encourage people to get active, and what better way than to explore the town with your family, friends or work colleagues?”

Mark Beach, Managing Director of Calico Homes, said: ” We are incredibly excited to be bringing Beat the Street to Burnley, working alongside our Burnley Together partners to jointly fund the project.

“We know that one of the best things people can do right now for their physical and mental health is to move more and go outdoors, and Beat the Street really helps people do just that in a safe way. This project will also provide us with a fabulous opportunity to engage with our customers in the community and bring people back together.”
