Lewisham Christmas shoppers get free parking
LEWISHAM Christmas shoppers can park for free in the run up to this year's festivities.
People will be able to park for free all day in Lewisham Council-run car parks in Blackheath, Catford, Deptford, Forest Hill, Lewisham and Sydenham on December 7, 14 and 21.
December 7 coincides with the traditional start of the Christmas shopping rush and also the UK’s first ‘Small Business Saturday’ - a national campaign to encourage shoppers to shop locally and use independent shops.
Mayor of Lewisham Sir Steve Bullock said: "Town centres are at the heart of our local communities and independent businesses play a huge role in making our town centres the vibrant and prosperous areas they are to work in and to shop."
The offer does not include on-street parking, Lewisham Shopping Centre (which is privately owned) or Blackheath Station car park which is now owned by Network Rail.
