HINCKLEY SHOPPERS are to benefit from free parking across selected town centre car parks on Saturdays in the run-up to Christmas.
They will be able to park in the Lower Bond Street, Trinity West, and Castle car parks completely free after 9am in the four Saturdays leading up to Christmas – these dates are 2 December, 9 December, 16 December, and 23 December respectively.
Borough council chiefs agreed to repeat the ever-popular offer again to thank town centre shoppers for their loyalty, and increase their trade for shops and businesses.
Shoppers can also park for free in the Hinckley college campus on the same days, with the same time restrictions. It is accessible behind the Atkins Building, and can be accessed from Druid Street.
Council Leader, Coun. 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.”
