Supporting Croydon town centre
26/08/2011 07:43:00

I’m delighted to see that the Council, the car park operators, the shopping centres and individual retailers are repeating last weekend’s offers to encourage people to come and shop or eat out in Croydon town centre over the Bank Holiday weekend. Parking on-street is free and you can park all day in any of the multi-storey car parks for just £2. In addition, there are lots of special offers and lots of family entertainment laid on. For all the information, click here.

So come into the town centre this weekend. If we want Croydon to recover we need to support it, not shop in Bromley or Bluewater. Please forward this message to your neighbours and friends in the Croydon area.

In the long term, of course, people are only going to come into the town centre if they feel safe and if the parking charges are reasonable. That’s why I’m campaigning for the current policing levels to be maintained and for a permanent cut in the parking prices in the multi-storey car parks.
