This Saturday – 26 October – normal parking charges are being waived in all of the town’s parking areas. Between 08:00 and 18:00 everyone will be able to park for free, but you may end up with a ticket if you overstay in the normal short term ‘timed’ spaces in the High Street, or in Hilliers Yard, Polly Gardens or The Parade.
Wiltshire Council, who take all the parking revenue have agreed to give the town time to allow the public to park free, and the Town Council has decided that this Saturday, one of the main shopping days in the run-up to Christmas will be a designated Free Parking day.
