Lewes Chamber of Commerce is pleased to report there’s FREE Car parking in 14 of the Town’s Pay & Display car parks on Saturdays throughout December.
Lewes District Council (LDC) have agreed to offer day-time free parking to pre-Christmas shoppers in a bid to attract visitors to the Town and support our independent shops and eateries.
Chamber President, Clare Crouch, said
“We encourage Lewes residents and visitors from outside the town to come into Lewes and find refreshing ideas that they may not have seen in their own home-town shops.
“This gesture by Lewes District Council is very much appreciated, and we hope that it will give everyone planning their Christmas shopping yet another great reason to do it here in Lewes! We just ask that everyone follows social distancing rules and guidelines that the shops have in place.
“We also realise that some shoppers may not be comfortable or able to physically visit Lewes, which is why we encourage them to check out shop websites and “Click It Local”. The new website launched by LDC features a host of Lewes Independent Shops and is supported by the European Regional Development Fund via the Welcome Back Fund.”
As well as the actual parking meter, REMEMBER DO NOT PAY via the phone or app, when using a participating car park on a free Saturday, as you will be charged and will not get a refund.
