Berwick will offer shoppers free parking before Christmas, as will Hexham an Alnwick

Shoppers who visit Berwick, Alnwick and Hexham will be able to take advantage of free parking in the week before Christmas.

Northumberland County Council has announced that parking will be free all day on Sunday December 18 in all three town centres.

And from Monday 19 to Christmas Eve this will also apply between 9am-11am and 3pm-5pm in Berwick, Alnwick and Hexham.

Councillor Isabel Hunter, executive member responsible for infrastructure and environment, said: “Free parking at Christmas was not part of the car parking strategy, but we recognise that in the current economic climate it is particularly important that we encourage people to shop locally and support businesses in the county.”
