Beat the Street Paisley has been commissioned by Renfrewshire Council with support from Paths for All’s Smarter Choices, Smarter Places programme. It is being delivered by Intelligent Health.

Depute Provost Cathy McEwan said: “I want to thank everyone who took part in Beat the Street Paisley for making it such a success.

“With more than 9,000 people taking part, it’s been incredible to see so many people walking, running, cycling and scooting around the town to get to the beat boxes.

“This will have such a positive impact on people’s health and activity levels and we hope that more and more people will continue to choose active travel methods to get to work and school.

“We want to continue the momentum created why not join our Not Far? Leave the Car campaign where you can earn points that can be turned into prizes and discounts at hundreds of Renfrewshire businesses.”

The Not Far? Leave the Car campaign encourages people in Renfrewshire to download the free BetterPoints app to track their journeys without the car.

Any journey of walking, cycling, scooting and even public transport will earn points and these can be exchanged for discounts at more than 100 local businesses.
