War Memorial Car Park.

War Memorial Car Park.

Please be aware when parking your car that there are now line markings in front of the garage, fire exit and bin area.

We kindly ask that you avoid parking in these areas which in effect block access. We appreciate that during busy times, it may sometimes be harder to find a parking space but under no circumstances should the marked areas be used for parking.

Thank you for your co-operation.
