Act Now is a social media app for mobile phones, that works in a similar way to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter but is entirely dedicated to pinpointing the identity of plastic pollution, brands and Geolocations, where members can post a Photo of the plastic litter that they find and add this to the Act Now timeline, where other members can comment, support and share content across other social media sites to embarrass/tag the brands and identify the location of the plastic that they find. Members can also create social or organisation groups, where they can invite friends, view a leader-board of groups, to see their ranking, support, totals and comments.
St. Michael’s welcomes everyone. We offer a range of activities for everybody and anybody as individuals and as part of their families. Of course everyone is welcome to ‘muck in’ to make St. Michael’s an inclusive and loving community for everyone. If there is something we don’t currently offer then come along and make it happen.
St. Michael’s plays an integrated and active part in the wider community, being a part of the village life in times of celebration and times of grief. All our regular worshipers are involved in their communities beyond the church’s regular activities and many in the village have an active interest in the church beyond Sunday worship.
We are a community farm (with a range of farm animals) open to the public for free visits.
We have always provided day placements for adults with learning difficulties and/or mental health issues who are able to fund these placements through social services.
We have become a part of the Connect Well (Hull) project because of our history of helping people who perhaps have low self-esteem, depression or loneliness issues, or perhaps just want to feel less isolated while carrying out healthy outdoor activities around farming and gardening.
The Connect Well project allows us to offer short (eight week) programmes of activities here at the farm and experience a range of the day to day work activities that we carry out here in a non-pressured friendly atmosphere and hopefully gain some of the therapeutic benefits that we regularly see in our long term clients.
