Traders and businesses in the town centre are encouraging shoppers to take advantage of the free parking schemes available in the run-up to Christmas.

Throughout the month visitors to the town will be able to park for free in all council-owned car parks (excluding Ty Pawb) as part of incentive to boost footfall and the local economy during the end of November and throughout December.

The free parking has also coincided with a series of big festive events in the town centre, including the Christmas light switch on mid-November, the Victorian Christmas Market and the three day Christmas Village taking place between Friday 13th and Sunday 15th.

Parking is now free after 10am in Waterworld, Library, St George’s Crescent, Crescent Road, St Giles and Market Street until Tuesday 24th December.

Members of the town centre forum are reminding the public about the free parking and are encouraging visitors to

Town Centre Forum Chair, Wayne Price of AMP Accounting said, “During Christmas, the town centre is open for business, we have free parking and Wrexham is really lucky to have so many independents of many shapes and sizes that Christmas shoppers can find something special for their loved ones.”

Daphne Roberts of Abode Above, “The lights put up by this council this Christmas are magical, we at Central Arcade have added our Christmas lights to the globes, they look wonderful, many shoppers have told me how lovely they look. Why not pop down to see them?”

Matt McHale of La Baguette added: “We have the Christmas Village later this month, so we hope the town takes advantage of the free parking for that and during the rest of the month also.”

The Christmas Village will be open from midday between Friday 13th and Sunday 15th December. On Friday and Saturday the stalls will be open until 8pm with entertainment in the teepee until 10pm. The village will close at 4pm on Sunday 15th December.

During the free parking periods, all other highway restrictions and long-stay / short-stay times will apply in the town centre and motorists are advised that they will be ticketed if they are not correctly parked.
