Free parking in Tenbury over Christmas period

Following recent pressures affecting the national economy and reports from local businesses about a slow down in trade, Malvern Hills District Council will be providing free car parking concessions in the week before Christmas.

From the 19th to the 24th December, pay and display charges will be waived in its car parks

Councillor Paul Cumming, Portfolio Holder for Finance & Resources at MHDC said:

“This council considers the support of local business and the local economy to be a priority and we are keen to assist local traders who have reported generally sluggish sales. We want to help give trade a boost and encourage more people to shop in our towns in the week leading up to Christmas. “

Whatever the Town or District Council can do to help alleviate the highstreet trading slow-down is to be welcomed.

With existing 'sluggish sales', the present fragile economic scenario and then the impending closure of the town's main arterial bridge entrance - we could do without any other threats to the health of town's highstreet shops though.
