Free parking for Christmas shoppers

CHRISTMAS shoppers in Pembrokeshire are set to receive a festive boost after Pembrokeshire County Council agreed to offer free weekend car parking throughout December.

The move, designed to support town centres by encouraging people to shop locally over the Christmas period applies to all council-run car parks in the County.

“Christmas is the busiest shopping period of the year and we want people to support their local shops,” said Cabinet Member for Transportation and Major Events Councillor Rob Lewis.

“We’re offering free weekend parking in December in a bid to encourage this and the decision also applies to Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve.”

Free parking in December will be available on: December 3, December 4, December 10, December 11, December 17, December 18, December 24, December 25, December 26 and December 31.
