    As just about everything is shut right now surely there is no need to be in town for longer than the maximum that Tesco, Aldi and Asda allow.

    Fair point.

    I wasn't thinking about the current restrictions to be honest.

    Even when everything was open, I would be hard pushed to find enough to do to take up the 2 - 3 hr limit of most free car parks. I suppose the cinema could take up more time? (If we were cinema goers).

    Cinema, Cafe Nero and The Swan were the only things I can remember staying in town for more than an hour and a half, for at least five years.

    My apologies I will bear your comments in mind in the future and not stay longer than 2 hours in the town as there is clearly no need (talk about pedantic)

    Why ?, are you that bored.

    The Gatehouse is about the only place for us, pre-lockdown, but I'm lucky as I have free parking at work should I need it. Plus I'm only a 25 min walk from the town centre.

    I'd forgotten about the Gatehouse, it all seems so long ago. Used to park at Wilkos but I guess that won't be possible for free any more, should the current excitement come to an end. And please keep what you get up to in lockdown to yourself...

    Walking to town has removed all my parking stresses! I had a sainsburys machine ate my coins but no ticket fail one time too often so order online now. Just go town for my fruit and veg.
