Did You Know?

James Watt invented the condenser sytem for steam engines which ushered in the steam age.

William Murdoch left his home town in southern Scotland aged 23 and walked the 300 miles to Birmingham. Upon arrival he asked James Watt for a job, got one and went on to become a full partner with Matthew Boulton and Watt. Murdoch developed many innovations, but is well known for inventing gas lighting.

Matthew Boulton was the father of mass production, developing the first systems for producing many identical objects like coins, cutlery and 'toys' using production lines in his Soho Manufactury in Hockley, he was also a founding member of the Lunar Society, a full moon meeting group of luminaries considered to be founders of the British Industrial Revolution.

2022 will be a very special year for Birmingham, the UK and for Community. However, much has to be done ahead of the Games and the great people of Birmingham have a key role to play.

2022withYou is a collaborative space and digital gateway for people who are keen to play a role and help make the Commonwealth Games a great success.

2022withYou - Helping to make the Commonwealth Games a great success for Birmingham




2022 will be a very special year for Birmingham, the UK and for Community. However, much has to be done ahead of the Games and the great people of Birmingham have a key role to play.

2022withYou is a collaborative space and digital gateway for people who are keen to play a role and help make the Commonwealth Games a great success.

Take the full post for more.


Introducing BirminghamWeAre - a Community of Passion

Before we go on to explain more about the collaborative digital space created at 2022withYou.net, let us first tell you what has been achieved by our Community of Passion at BirminghamWeAre.

In 2015, BirminghamWeAre set up an account on twitter to keep the people of Birmingham updated on a new impact focused digital space and portal being built (at that time) by FreeTimePays for people who are passionate about making a difference and creating a positive impact.

In just a couple of years, the reach of, and interest in, BirminghamWeAre has grown significantly. For example, over 0.7 million impressions is now typically achieved every month by BirminghamWeAre through social media.

BirminghamWeAre.com was established as the first Community of Passion by FreeTimePays in 2017.

BirminghamWeAre.com is a digital 'shout out' space for people to promote their passion and connect with people who share that passion. 

But most importantly BirminghamWeAre is a digital gateway through which passionate people can gain access to a suite of FreeTimePays engagement tools which they can use to create an impact and make that all important difference for themselves and others.

FreeTimePays is all about positive social value and economic growth and achieving this by supporting the passions of individuals and community.

Already attracting a following of 100,000. FreeTimePays connected Communities of Passion will continue to grow its reach by 100% every year.

Birmingham is the first City to benefit from FreeTimePays digital technology. 

2022withYou - a space for shared passion in support of the Commonwealth Games

2022withYou is a Community of Passion dedicated to making the Commonwealth Games a success for Birmingham

BirminghamWeAre has been totally behind Birmingham's bid for the games and the engagement channel has several 'Games' related features already running and provides access to a huge gallery of Birmingham related content (including stunning photography).

However such is the commitment of BirminghamWeAre in helping to make the Games a great success for the City, we have gone one step further. 2022withYou as a domain has been registered to promote passion, support people with passion and give access to the FreeTimePays portal for collaborations and projects in support of a successful Commonwealth Games for Birmingham.

2022withYou will grow as a shared space for the many individuals, communities and businesses that will want to connect with the Games. Their work, their ideas and their proposals can be pulled together in the one collaborative space.

This space will also provide unlimited access to the latest engagement tools for conducting surveys, polls, online group discussions and conversations

In November 2018 we launch Passion Points, a FreeTimePays form of gamification that recognises and rewards people who get involved, help make a difference and collectively create impact.

We would be delighted to tell you more.

Contact Jonathan Bostock at jonathan.bostock@freetimepays.com or connect HERE with FreeTimePays for more information on sharing your passion for Birmingham and for the Commonwealth Games.

Now let's show you what you get with FreeTimePays. 

FreeTimePays

FreeTimePays is an impact focused digital platform and social media channel specifically for people who want to make a difference and create a positive social and economic impact.

FreeTimePays is the social media of choice for 'People with Passion'.

With FreeTimePays, we help people take their passion to the next level by giving them access to a suite of digital tools and applications.

There are three components to FreeTimePays.

There’s Community Passport, Community Workspace and Community Matchmaker. Operating right across the platform in recognition of the valuable contribution being made by users is FreeTimePays gamification. This takes the form of points and rewards for passions shared.

FreeTimePays is here for people who really want to become involved in their community or with their particular passion and for those people who are really serious about making a difference. It’s our job at FreeTimePays to provide the tools and functionality that helps bring together those who create the great ideas with those who have the potential to turn an idea into something that really does make a difference.

Community Passport

Passport is a personal space which registered members can make their own. With a passport, members can choose to get involved with their passion and participate in many different ways.

They can view regular content and posts; sort and save this content by type or by passion; they can collect points for giving their views through polls and surveys, attend events or even join a discussion.

With a FreeTimePays Community Passport, members can follow inspiring people and they can learn more about their community and their passion by following regular ‘Did you Know’ features. And the more they decide to do and the more they get involved, the more points they collect and the greater the opportunity to take up offers and win prizes.

Community Workspace

With their unique Community Workspace, FreeTimePays is able to help those who are inspired and serious about taking things to the next level. FreeTimePays will give these people their own access rights environment where they can work on their idea or project.

In this digital space they can work alone, or bring in others to share in building evidence, acquiring knowledge and developing plans. This is the ideal space for working on the business; working on the idea; working on the initiative.

A range of facilities and tools can be found in workspace and users can effectively utilise this space for collating documents, photos, videos and web links, for opening up discussion and chat with others, or for running surveys and analysing results.

Community Matchmaker

The whole focus and rationale for FreeTimePays is making a difference. It’s our job at FreeTimePays to provide the tools and functionality that helps bring together those who create the great ideas with those who have the potential to turn an idea into something that really does make a difference.

Matchmaker is where the dreamers can join with the dream makers – with those who are more than happy to put their support, their resources, their connections, and their wealth of experience behind the idea and behind the passionate people responsible for coming up with the idea.

These are the community drivers, the investors, the philanthropists, the funders of great initiatives, the Lottery, and those from local government and the public sector who are responsible for the provision of public services.

These are the people and the organisations who are in positions of making things happen for those who are passionate and inspired to want to make a difference.

For more detail on what is provided by FreeTimePays connect HERE.

ItsYourBuild

ItsYourBuild will grow as a shared space for the many individuals, communities and businesses that will want to connect and share their passion for construction and regeneration.

Their work, their ideas and their proposals can be pulled together in the one collaborative space giving them access to a huge resource bank for sharing images, documents and web links. 

In this space people can chat in a secure environment if they wish; they can set up and promote events; or they can communicate with any of the FreeTimePays Communities through creating and submitting posts. 

We would be delighted to tell you more.

Matchmaker is where the dreamers can join with the dream makers – with those who are more than happy to put their support, their resources, their connections, and their wealth of experience behind the idea and behind the passionate people responsible for coming up with the idea.

These are the community drivers, the investors, the philanthropists, the funders of great initiatives, the Lottery, and those from local government and the public sector who are responsible for the provision of public services.

These are the people and the organisations who are in positions of making things happen for those who are passionate and inspired to want to make a difference.

Transport for the Future

Transport for the Future will grow as a shared space for the many individuals, communities and businesses that will want to connect and share in their passion for the future of transportation.

Their work, their ideas and their proposals can be pulled together in the one collaborative space giving them access to a huge resource bank for sharing images, documents and web links. 

In this space people can chat in a secure environment if they wish; they can set up and promote events; or they can communicate with any of the FreeTimePays Communities through creating and submitting posts. 

We would be delighted to tell you more.

Contact admin@freetimepays.com or connect HERE with FreeTimePays for more information on sharing your passion.

Find out more about the 'Friends of Kings Heath Park' by connecting here.

Kings Heath Park is centered on the Park House which was built in 1832 for the MP, William Congreve Russell. In 1880, it was bought by John Cartland (ancestor of the author Barbara Cartland, lover of pinkness and author of  romantic novels!).

The land was sold to the council and opened as a public park in 1908. The building houses council offices and the Cartland Tea Rooms.

Plants are available for sale in the nursery at Kings Heath Park.

Let's take a look at the Park though the seasons :
