    Shoppers in West Somerset are being offered a Christmas bonus this year – free parking all day on December 23.

    West Somerset Council will waive charges in all its car parks on the busy Saturday before Christmas to give traders, shoppers and visitors a festive boost.
     
    The offer will be publicised nearer the day to make sure that people make the most of what West Somerset’s retail businesses have to offer – and buy local.
     
    Cllr Andrew Hadley, Cabinet member with responsibility for parking services, said: “I hope that people will use this special offer and visit our towns and villages – Minehead, Watchet, Williton, Dunster, Dulverton and Porlock.
     
    “West Somerset is a special place – and especially at Christmas when so many events and entertainment are on offer. I hope the free parking offer will be an extra encouragement to shop locally.”
