Free Saturday parking in the run-up to Christmas

SHOPPERS will be able to enjoy free parking throughout Sedgemoor on the three weekends before Christmas.

The district council has decided to waive charges in all 18 of its car parks on Saturday, December 4, 11 and 18.

A spokesperson for the council said: “Especially given the additional impacts of Covid-19 on the local economy, we are keen to support our many local and varied traders in the towns and villages across Sedgemoor and give residents and visitors an added incentive to shop locally in the festive season.

“There will be notices on the tariff machines in the car parks advising of the free parking.”

Sedgemoor council is also waiving charges from 4pm on Saturday, November 20 in its Bridgwater and Burnham-on-Sea car parks to support both towns’ Christmas lights switch-on events.
