The nationwide initiative to promote the use of small local firms over the multinationals and online retailers is being supported by Selby District Council who are set to waive parking charges in their car parks on Saturday, December 6th.
As in previous years, the Council says it will also be offering free parking on Saturdays on the run up to Chrismtas. Parking will be charge-free during Saturday, December 13th and Saturday, December 20th.
Selby District Council Leader Cllr Mark Crane said, "Our district has a lot to offer shoppers including a wide range of small independent shops alongside the bigger stores. We want to bring visitors into the area and encourage our residents to shop locally too."
