Free parking on Saturdays this Christmas
CHRISTMAS shopping in Hinckley will be given a boost once again this year with free car parking in selected town centre car parks on Saturdays in the run-up to Christmas.
Shoppers will be able to park for free in Lower Bond Street, Trinity West and Castle car parks (after 9am) in the four Saturdays before Christmas. The Borough Council has agreed to repeat the popular offer again this year to thank shoppers for their loyalty and to increase trade for shops and businesses.
The free parking offer applies from 9am on 2, 9, 16 and 23 December. Shoppers are reminded that parking is free in all council run car parks on Sundays throughout the year.
Additionally, shoppers will also be able to park for free in North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College (NWSLC) car park in the four Saturdays before Christmas. The car park, which is directly behind the Atkins Building, can be accessed from Druid St.
Council Leader, Cllr Stuart Bray said: “We continue to recognise the financial challenges this Christmas everyone is facing but hope that this free parking offer will urge residents to support their local high street, market and hospitality venues if they can. My thanks also to NWSLC for opening their car park to shoppers.”
