4th November 2009

<p>A reliable source tells me that the Council is about to announce that there will be<strong> FREE parking</strong> in three of our long stay car parks in Hinckley for four weekends over the Christmas period.  I understand from my source that the three<a title="Car Parking Information" href="" target="_blank"> <strong><span style="COLOR: #ff6600">car parks will be Brunel Road (South), Mount Road and Trinity Lane (West)</span></strong></a> and the first Saturday will be the 28th November 2009 and then each Saturday up until the 19th December 2009, inclusive.</p> <p>This is <strong>great news for shoppers</strong> and an encouragement to get into town and support our town centre.  Certainly, it’s a good move in light of the Council’s decision to withdraw the Christmas period park-and-ride service that it provided last year, which it is reported ran with little success and at high cost.</p> <p>A further bonus on car parking is that I also understand that there will be FREE parking in ALL the town centre car parks over the period 27th and 28th December 09 and 1st January 2010!</p> <p><strong>Watch out for the official notice and then get shopping</strong> in Hinckley town centre. Your local retailers do particularly need your support in these difficult financial times and as the old adage goes ‘unless you use it you may lose it’.  Despite what you might have read elsewhere there are still plenty of excellent and independent shops in town and so <strong>let’s make Hinckley town centre buzz over this festive season.<br /></strong></p> <p><strong>It's Official</strong> (09.43am 4 Nov 09)<strong>: STOP PRESS - Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council Announces FREE Christmas car parking in the town centre.</strong></p> <p><span style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial">For more information contact Steve Merry, Environmental Services Manager (Commercial), on 01455 255 735.</span></p> <p><span style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Ian Daniels, Chairman of Hinckley Town Centre Partnership, says: “It’s great news for businesses and the public to have free parking in the town in the run-up to Christmas and I hope the scheme will encourage more shoppers into Hinckley.”</span></p>/b3c31b4f-d55e-4534-ac31-095ca24c7075.jpg
