Free Parking in Oswestry this Christmas

Oswestry Town Council have agreed to waive parking fees on Saturday the 7th, 14th and 21st December.  This decision covers the Town Council operated car parks only, of Central car park, The Horsemarket and Smithfield Street.

With car parking in Oswestry, already free on Sundays, this means that shoppers will have the benefit of free parking in the three weekends on the run up to Christmas.

Mayor, Councillor John Price, said: “It is just one of the ways that we promote the town and encourage people to come and visit.

Adele Nightingale, Oswestry BID Manager, said ‘We welcome the decision from Oswestry Town Council, and would advise our businesses to promote the free festive parking to encourage the public to ‘shop local”
