To encourage residents to shop locally this Christmas, Tewkesbury Borough Council is offering free parking in its car parks for two days in Tewkesbury and Winchcombe.
Tewkesbury enjoyed free parking for its Christmas light switch-on on 25 November and will offer shoppers more free parking on Saturday 1 December to support Small Business Saturday – a national initiative to encourage consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.
Winchcombe will also offer free parking in Bull Lane and Back Lane car parks on the two Saturdays running up to Christmas (Saturday 15 December and Saturday 22 December) to help local businesses with trade and shoppers with their last-minute search for the perfect gifts.
Councillor Rob Bird, leader of Tewkesbury Borough Council, said: “Why not make your Christmas shopping experience an easy and memorable one, by exploring what the independent, local shops and businesses in Tewkesbury and Winchcombe have to offer – and take full advantage of the free parking to do so!”
