Shoppers and visitors can enjoy free parking in Oakham and Uppingham in support of Small Business Saturday 2017 and late night shopping events taking place in the run-up to Christmas.
Small Business Saturday is a national event that encourages people to make use of local retailers and service providers.
As in previous years, Rutland County Council has organised free parking across all local authority car parks to support Small Business Saturday, with charges and restrictions suspended in both Oakham and Uppingham on Saturday 2nd December.
In addition to Small Business Saturday, free parking has also been organised for upcoming late night shopping events in both Uppingham and Oakham.
“Small Business Saturday has grown year on year and is now a popular annual event among shoppers and retailers. Likewise, many people now look forward to the late night shopping events in Oakham and Uppingham as part of the build-up to Christmas. We hope people will make the most of the opportunity to park for free in both towns and enjoy everything they have to offer.”
Councillor Tony Mathias, Leader of Rutland County Council
