The parking is available from 9-30am on Saturday, December 5th, 12th and 19th, at the Lowergate, Market and Railway View (council offices) car parks in Clitheroe and the Barclay Road car park in Longridge.
Coun. Atkinson said: “We have been offering free festive parking at our main car parks for some years now and the initiative has proved very popular.
“A lot of hard work goes into making Christmas in Ribble Valley very special and this year is no exception, despite the pandemic
“We have supported business where possible throughout the pandemic and are asking local people to support local traders during these extremely challenging times for the high street.
“So forget the hustle and bustle of retail parks or hours spent online and take advantage of free parking in Clitheroe and Longridge to see what our unique, independent and safe shops have ,to offer.”
The free parking is intended for shoppers only, not traders or town centre workers, and other municipal car parks are not included.
