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 Saturday 27 November and then Saturdays 4, 11 and 18 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 (NWSL) car park in the four Saturdays before Christmas. The car park, which is directly behind the Atkins Building, can be accessed from Druid Street.
Council Leader, Cllr Stuart Bray said: “After yet another challenging year I would urge residents and visitors to the borough to support their local high street and hospitality venues and hope this free car parking offer encourages people to come into the town centre. My thanks also to NWSL for opening their car park to shoppers.”
