PARKING will be free in three Bognor Regis town centre car parks for a day.

Arun District Council has joined in the festive season by getting rid of charges on December 7 at the Fitzleet, Lyon Street and Hothamton sites to support Small Business Saturday.

This is a national event designed to recognise the important contribution the firms make to the country’s economy.

Cllr Gillian Brown, the council’s leader, said: “Small and independent retailers make a vital contribution to the vibrancy and success of town centres.

“As well as offering shoppers a greater variety of goods, they often play a much greater role in society which you cannot put a price on.”

The free car parking will be available from 8am-6pm.

Arun has also joined with Bognor Regis Chamber of Commerce to offer free all-day parking at Fitzleet, off Queensway, on Saturdays, until December 21.
