Early Christmas Present for Shoppers as Mayor Announces Free Parking

by timhill on 8 November, 2009

Mayor Dave Hodgson has delivered an early Christmas Present to shoppers in Bedford town centre by announcing a week of free parking beginning on November 30th. All council-run car parks in the town centre will be free for all users during this week, with this initiative just one of several which make Bedford the place to go for Christmas shoppers this year.

I am delighted the Mayor has announced this week of free parking in the run-up to Christmas. It will provide a real boost for residents and town centre retailers towards the end of what has been a tough year economically for everyone. Along with the range of promotions and events in the town centre that are coming up, the free parking scheme will make Bedford an even more attractive place to come for Christmas shoppers.

The Car parks involved in the free parking week are:


· River Street

· St. Peters Street

· Lurke Street

· Queen Street

· Allhallows

· Riverside Square

· Duckmill Lane

· Melbourne Street
