Minster FM Competitions


At the Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa, including a Heli-Jet helicopter flight

For Valentines Day, we gave two lucky people the chance to find love in the air with Heli-Jet Aviation and the Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa.


This was an amazing chance to find love on an amazing blind date at the Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa on Friday 10th February 2017.

Two lucky people who never met before will enjoyed champagne afternoon tea and spa treatments together at this beautiful hotel.

They also took to the skies over the beautiful Bolton Abbey estate in a Heli-Jet Aviation Helicopter.

Our lucky couple were Carl Rodgers from Selby and Katie Scaife from York, both 28. See how they got on below.
