Free car parking in December

Free car parking in December

Derbyshire Dales District Council is offering free parking from 2pm each day throughout December on all of their off-street car parks. This is on top of the residents’ parking concession badge which allows Dales residents to park free of charge up to 11am and after 4pm. The free parking extends to midnight each day.

The scheme is being promoted to encourage people to shop local and support local businesses and economy in the Derbyshire Dales. It is the 11th consecutive year the council has given free parking over the festive period.

The District Council operates car parks across many parts of the Derbyshire Dales and in the four main town centres of Matlock, Bakewell, Wirksworth and Ashbourne. To find locations of the council’s car parks with December free parking please click here.

PLEASE NOTE – free parking after 2pm is only valid on off-street car parks that are operated by Derbyshire Dales District Council. You can check if the car park is owned by the District Council by checking the pay and display machines and boards in the car park. Normal charges and restrictions will still apply at all on-street car parks and those operated by Derbyshire County Council and private owners.

The Elton Local History Group have also put together a booklet titled Elton Remembers. The booklet contains biographies of the servicemen with connections to Elton who gave their lives in the during the First and Second World Wars.

You can view the booklet by clicking here or on the image below.

The Foreword of the booklet states  “This booklet was researched and compiled by members of the Elton Local History Group.  The Group wishes to acknowledge the cooperation of relatives of the men concerned in lending photographs and other documents.”

The scan of the booklet is not of the finest quality, but we hope that local residents will take the time to read, reflect and remember those fallen servicemen from our Parish.
