FREE parking is being offered at Kidderminster town centre car parks across two weekends.

Kidderminster BID has announced that several car parks will be included as part of the "early Christmas present."

People will be able to park for free on Saturday, December 9 and Sunday, December 10, as well as Saturday December 16, and Sunday, December 17.

The car parks include Bull Ring - short stay, Market Street - short stay, Aldi store - long stay, Batemans Yard - long stay, Bromsgrove Street - long stay, Comberton Place - long stay, Pike Mills - long stay and St Mary's Church - long stay.

Weaver's Wharf car park is excluded from the offer. Terms and conditions apply for the Bull Ring and Market Street car parks.

The offer runs alongside Wyre Forest District Council's free festive parking scheme, where Christmas shoppers can take advantage of three hours of free parking between 3pm and 6pm from Monday to Friday across council-owned car parks. 

In a post on Facebook, Kidderminster BID said: "Here's an early Christmas present from your friendly neighbourhood BID team. Come and jingle down for the next two weekends of free parking across Kidderminster’s town centre. Don't forget to use it because, let's be real here, free parking on a weekend? That's like finding a needle in a haystack".
