Mid Suffolk District Councillors are offering free parking in Stowmarket on for the Christmas light switch on event this week and the Annual Christmas Craft Fayre in December.
In a move designed to support shoppers and traders in the build up to Christmas and to showcase all that the town has to offer, parking in all six car parks in Stowmarket will be free from 3pm on Friday 24November for the Christmas lights switch on event. Free car parking will also be available all day on Saturday 9 December 2017 for the Stowmarket Christmas Craft Fayre.
Gerard Brewster, Mid Suffolk District Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy said: “With the festive season nearly upon us, we wanted to do something to help our local traders in and around Stowmarket during their busiest time. The town has so much to offer visitors and we hope this will encourage people into the town so they can see for themselves what a fantastic range of shops and restaurants we have here in Stowmarket.”
