The HIPS Finder leisure database has been under construction since 1993 and went online in 2007. It operates to benefit every community in the UK. HIPSfinder Limited is a family-focused ethical company.
David Westron, Founder and Director
HIPSfinder is brainchild of David Westron who started researching right back in 1993 for HIPSfinder. David has a highly creative and inventive mind complemented by a positive and fun-loving personality. A successful designer of games and puzzles, David is also an inventor and innovator – one of his most successful developments being a Bio-Reducer and Bio-Digester: a farm waste disposal system, low on carbon and high on eco benefits. When David met Darren HIPSfinder.com was born.
Darren Bovis-Coulter, Webmaster and Director
Darren is a successful entrepreneur – running his own web design & hosting business and a custom graphics business. He has also been a Guest Lecturer in Animation at the University of Portsmouth. Darren has no shortage of favourite HIPS of his own: a keen sailor, he is also a sailing instructor and enjoys boatbuilding, motorcycles, and DIY. He also drums in modern Christian rock band ‘The Lifejackets’. He is married with three small children.
HIPSfinder.com is increasingly attracting the attention of local authorities around the UK as a useful source of regularly updated information about leisure in their local areas – which they do not need to manage themselves.
