MAP visits Green Futures
Members of the Man Alive Project recently visited Green Futures on Bradley Road, Grimsby as part of their weekly Wednesday meetings. They were welcomed by Carol Prendergast, Chief Executive Officer and the Senior Horticulturist Elaine Atkinson. The visit had a twofold purpose, one to seek guidance and expert information to help Man Alive prepare for projects within the grounds of Centre4, and to find out more about volunteering for Green Futures on their new after school and holiday club projects with Oasis Academy, Nunsthorpe.
Man Alive members, who meet at 10am on Wednesdays at Centre 4 on Wootton Road, are keen to get involved with these exciting new Green Futures projects that include children and wider family members. The projects will encourage communication, personal development, and community spirit with the ultimate aim to enter the ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ awards.
Members of the Man Alive group enjoyed their visit and were surprised to find that the area known as the Willow Woodland has a hide for bird watching.
If you are a man aged over 50 and interested in joining the Man Alive group then contact Positive Activities on 01472 236677 or firstname.lastname@example.org or if you want to find out more about the work of Green Futures you can contact them on 01472 870609

Business Hive Challenge 2016
What a suberb day it turned our to be for another E Factor Business Hive business challenge
Businesses from all over the region took part in four team challenges provided by local community group Positive Activities.
The event took place at the stunning venue of Healing Manor who provided fine food and drinks throughout the day which included a splendid sit down buffet after all competitors had finished their challenges.
ARCHERY SESSION HITS THE TARGET
Archery Coaches Alistair Woodhouse and Mike Burley delivered another enjoyable session to the youngsters of BANC (Binbrook Activity Night Club) on Wednesday 9/6/2016, at the village hall grounds.
The event was requested by the chair of the village organisation Mr Andrew Naden, who is also a member of the Sunday Positive Activities archery group.
On interview Andy told us that the group currently has around 30 primary age and younger members and the intent of the parents and committee is to offer the children something different, and to ensure they are introduced to social and beneficial activities. From the politeness and excitement, we received we can confirm that they are succeeding.
Several individuals had never handled a bow but after calm and clear tuition they soon picked up and their aims and scores were more than above expectations.
“Solidarity and community spirit is the driving force that keeps us going; we enjoy seeing their enjoyment, but tonight, I had a go and found it rather nerve racking but so enjoyable.” Kate Collins (parent)
The youngest member was 3 yr. old Evie Webster proving that age is not a barrier.
Jill Bruce stated that she was also nervous but surprised herself by hitting Gold with her first arrow
Some great laughter and fun was had by all and we will be returning to this great village

“The course was once again a huge success, the students really enjoyed it, learnt a lot and gained some excellent grades for their GCSE PE course. From first contact to completion of the course, the organisation was excellent. All members of your Positive Activities team (formerly GHoPA) were very professional, knowledgeable and developed excellent relationships with the students throughout the course.
I would like to thank you all on behalf of myself, the students and the Academy and will look forward to work with you all again in the future.”
