Shoppers in Ashfield will be able to park their cars for free across the whole of the district on Small Business Saturday.

Ashfield District Council will cut car parking fees in ALL council car parks in an effort to promote local businesses and encourage residents to shop locally.

It takes place on Saturday, 6th December - but it is hoped the campaign will have a lasting effect on small businesses.

Council leader, councillor Chris Baron said: “As a council we are fully supportive of this campaign and want to encourage people to take advantage of free parking and support their local shops rather than shopping online and giving their money to large corporations.

“There are many unique and independent shops and markets in Ashfield and I hope they benefit from this scheme.”
