Free Afternoon Parking for Christmas Shoppers

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 from Monday 3rd December 2018 until Tuesday 1st January 2019 and the Council hope this will encourage more people to shop local and support local businesses.

People will also be able to take advantage of the free parking when visiting our first ever Stocking Filler Markets that are taking place in Worksop on Thursday 29th November, 6th and 13th December and in Retford on Tuesday 4th, 11th and 18th of December.

Councillor Simon Greaves, Leader of Bassetlaw District Council, said: “I am pleased that we are offering free parking in Worksop and Retford from 2pm once again and hope that this will encourage even more people to visit our town centres for their Christmas Shopping. As always we remain committed to supporting local businesses and hope that the free parking will increase trade for them over the festive period.”

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