A 19-year-old from Beverley who runs a business-to-business marketing and media production company is planning to launch a nationwide hospitality app that aims to provide comprehensive, up-to-date profiles and details of restaurants, hotels, pubs and leisure facilities in towns and cities across the UK.

Dominic Brown, owner of Iudex Media, says the app, called Fabspot, will be free to users when it goes live on March 22, and told Beverley FM: “The fundamental aim of Fabspot is to help people make informed hospitality and leisure choices, particularly in places they are new to visiting and with which they might be unfamiliar.” More information is available at 

Beverley Minster is offering family fun activities during the half-term holiday by encouraging youngsters to follow the Sanctuary Trail, a specially designed route around the historic building where they can find answers to questions and complete puzzles as they explore. Sanctuary Trail booklets for them to fill in with their answers can be collected from the welcome desk at the Minster and those completing the booklet will be rewarded with a sticker.

The event is free, mainly aimed at children of primary school age, and is available between 10am to 4pm, from Monday February 21 to Friday the 25th.  As well as the Sanctuary Trail, children can join craft activities on Thursday the 24th.
