Annual free parking is provided by South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils to encourage people to shop locally for their Christmas presents, and is even more important this year following the economic impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The free parking days allocated to each area are agreed with the individual town councils depending on which day would best suit local traders.
Drivers will be able to park for free in South and Vale car parks on the following days:
Abingdon – Saturdays 4th, 11th and 18th December
Didcot – Mondays – 6th, 13th and 20th December
Faringdon – Saturdays 27th November, and 4th and 11th December
