Free Christmas car parking to entice shoppers
Free parking will be offered at two car parks in a Cornish town in a bid to increase footfall in the run up to the festive season.
Customers at the Rosewarne short and long stay car parks in Camborne will be able to park for free every Saturday from November 23 to December 21.
The deal has been struck between BID Camborne and Cornwall Council, which owns the car parks, to encourage more shoppers to head into town.
In total, there will be 200 spaces available in both car parks, with ticket machines taken out of action on free parking days, to avoid any confusion.

BID Camborne manager Mel Martin said: "Parking costs definitely influence where people shop and initiatives like this are valued by both Camborne's customers and businesses.
"We trialled a scheme in the autumn of last year, and that benefited around 10,000 shoppers.
"It's really exciting to run another offer during the most important time of the year for retailers and shoppers alike."
BID Camborne recently announced that it had invested £30,000 in improving infrastructure for Christmas lights throughout the West Cornwall town.
