A new community website launches in York today - and a 12-year-old boy is at the heart of the idea.
The Incredible Movement in York - affectionately known as TIM in York - is a hub that lets community groups get together online to talk local things, promote events, and co-ordinate new projects.
Zack Chamberlin-Kidd has been instrumental to TIM's launch, and proudly came up with its nickname.
He told Minster FM: "It fits very well, because it's for people to be involved with - and Tim is a person's name. It's used well for social media, because you can [shorten it] to Tim. It's also an acronym of The Incredible Movement - so it works like that."
Not satisfied with christening TIM, Zack also turned his hand to designing its logo. His idea was to envelop the letters of TIM inside a green circle - which emphasises the sense of community and togetherness that the hub aims to create.
A virtual hub has been a long-term goal for grassroots groups in York - and now TIM is here, it's hoped it will really take off.
People can see TIM being demonstrated this afternoon at Clements Hall in York, between 2 and 4.
