In the spirit of the season, Shropshire Council is offering free parking in their Pay and Display car parks in Whitchurch for the Lights Switch On celebration on Saturday 30 November 2013.

Visitors and shoppers will be able to take up the offer as free parking kicks in at 2pm to allow for late afternoon shoppers to benefit too before the big switch on lights up the town.

Claire Wild, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for highways and transport, said:

“It’s great to support the event and help everyone in the area make the most of these special events.  I hope people take up the offer and make this an extra special night for the community.”

Simon Lyon, Treasurer of the Whitchurch Chamber of Trade and Commerce, said:

“The Whitchurch Christmas lights team is very pleased that Shropshire Council is working in partnership with the Chamber of Trade and Whitchurch Town Council, and is able to provide the free parking offer once again this year for the Lights Switch On afternoon.”
