Queen Anne's girls enjoy 'Beat the Street' Challenge and cream teas!

Monday 17th June 2013

On Sunday 16 June, a group of boarders went into Caversham to start the ‘Beat the Street’ Challenge and enjoy a typical cream tea at the Crown Plaza Hotel. The ‘Beat the Street’ Challenge  is an initiative to get the people of Caversham more active by collecting points which will eventually turn into prizes for the schools who travel the furthest between 15 June and 15 September. The first ‘Beat the Street’ box is outside Queen Anne’s and the boxes are then approximately 0.2 miles apart.

After the girls had registered their cards at several boxes, we sat down to an amazing cream tea. All the girls enjoyed  2 scones, lashings of cream and strawberry jam. It was delicious! After we were completely full, we walked back via the park and had fun on the swings. We then walked back clocking up more ‘Beat the Street’ points. It was a fun afternoon with a fabulous tea!

‘Beat the Street’ is a school walking challenge which is part of a Caversham-wide initiative, funded through Reading Borough Council’s Sustainable Travel Fund, to look at new ways to encourage more sustainable ways of travelling throughout the town. The ultimate aim is for the community to collectively walk the equivalent distance to walking around the world! Each time they reach a milestone towards that aim, some money is released to buy books for the schools and library in Caversham. To find out more about the Challenge, visit www.beatthestreet.me
