Hive Wiring Help

Hi all,

I'm after some assistance in wiring up my new Hive Active Heating Thermostat (with single channel receiver).

My current setup consists of an old heating timer, connected to my Worcester 24i Junior combi boiler. I don't currently have a thermostat.

I've tried to draw a wiring diagram of how this is currently wired up (Current Wiring.pdf).

My question is how do I wire up to the Hive receiver correctly? I've drawn up what I think I need to do (Hive Wiring.pdf), is this right?

I've also attached some actual images of the current setup to hopefully be clear.

Thanks in advance for your help!
