Free Afternoon Parking for Christmas Shoppers

Santa Parking
Shoppers in Worksop and Retford will be able to take advantage of free parking again this year in all Bassetlaw District Council Car Parks in the run up to Christmas and New Year.

Parking will be free after 2pm each day for four weeks from Monday 5 December until Monday 2 January 2017.

There will also be free parking from 2pm in all Council Car Parks for the Christmas lights switch-on event in Worksop on Saturday 26 November. Parking is also free every Sunday in all Council Car Parks and will remain free for the Retford Christmas event on Sunday 27 November.

Stickers advising of the free parking times and conditions will be placed on all parking meters within Council Car Parks.

Councillor June Evans, Cabinet Member for Finance, said: “We hope that the free parking in Worksop and Retford will encourage residents to visit our town centres for their Christmas Shopping and hopefully pick up some fantastic gifts for family friends.”

“We also remain committed to supporting local businesses within the district and hope that this initiative will be a catalyst for increased trade over the festive period.”
