FREE weekend parking in Rotherham town centre begins on Saturday and continues into the new year.
Cllr Denise Lelliott, Rotherham Borough Council’s cabinet member for the economy, said: “Traders have said that the free parking in the run up to the festive season gives them a vital boost to their businesses.
“Shopping in the town centre gives lots of choice for customers and we encourage them to come along and use the free parking to see the great range of gifts and products on offer.”
All council on-street bays and off-street car parks are included.
Time restrictions still apply and Saturday charges resume on January 5.
