The efforts of the community also mean that the local charity SWALLOWS will benefit from a £500 donation. This will assist their work enabling local teenagers and adults with learning disabilities to live independently.

Becky Reynolds, Director of Public Health for Bath & North East Somerset Council, said:

“Congratulations to each and every player who got involved with Beat the Street and took the time to play the game as a team. We hope you have enjoyed trying a different way to be physically active and had fun whilst doing so. Keeping up daily movement in our lives can transform our health and wellbeing and we hope Beat the Street has inspired people to carry on being active outdoors.”

Participants will be invited to give their feedback via the post-game survey and the winners will receive their rewards throughout July.

Whilst Beat the Street has come to an end, legacy planning is taking place to support sustained walking and cycling activity in the Somer Valley. Look out for a legacy game being planned for September.
