Free parking in the run up to Christmas

Drivers in South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse can benefit from free parking in district council car parks on certain days in December.

The annual free parking tradition is provided by South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils to encourage people to shop locally for their Christmas presents.   The free parking days allocated to each area are agreed with the individual town councils depending on which day would best suit local traders.

Free Christmas parking days also means people don’t have to pay to park if they wish to catch up with friends and family in the pubs, cafés and restaurants during the festive period.

Drivers will be able to park without paying for a ticket in South and Vale car parks on the following days next month:

South Oxfordshire

  • Didcot – Mondays (9, 16, 23 December)
  • Goring – Saturdays (7, 14, 21 December)
  • Henley – Tuesdays (3, 10, 17 December)
  • Thame – Saturdays (7, 14, 21 December)
  • Wallingford – Thursdays (5, 12,19 December)

Vale of White Horse

  • Abingdon – Saturdays (7, 14, 21 December)
  • Faringdon – Saturdays (30 November and 7, 14 December)
  • Wantage – Saturdays (7, 14, 21 December)

On the above days there’s no need to display a ticket.

Parking is also free on a Sunday in many of the council-owned town centre car parks in South and Vale – please check the tariff boards in car parks for further details.

Holocaust Memorial Day event -Standing Together @ Christchurch, Thame
Holocaust Memorial Day on Monday 27 January is being marked at Christchurch, Thame.   On this day of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of  Auschwitz a quiet space is offered to people of all faiths for personal reflection on the inhumanity of the Holocaust and other recent genocides in the light of the identity based hostility and hatred that feed into the divisions of our times. Leaflets and a display will be available to aid reflection.  People are invited drop in for as long as they wish at any time between 10am to 12noon and 5pm to 7pm.
