SHOPPERS are being urged to make the most of a saving scheme in Warminster which allows them to reclaim their parking fees if they use certain town centre shops.

The Warminster Parking Partnership reimburses customers for up to two hours of parking - which could mean they can save as much as £1.30 each time they visit the town.

Shoppers can obtain a refund by handing in the voucher portion of their parking tickets to a participating shop/business. Premises in the town that are taking part in the scheme display ID stickers.

The scheme applies to the car parks at Furlong, Weymouth Street, Chinns Yard and Emwell Street as well as the large Central and Western car parks.

A spokesman fro Warminster Town Council said: "Refunds can be for as much as £1.30 for two hours parking in Weymouth Street. Even someone parking in Warminster for just a couple of hours each week could potentially save £60 over the course of a year. With Christmas coming, savings could add up to a tidy sum. A reminder of the scheme is printed on the back of parking tickets in the relevant car parks."

Participating businesses are currently:

Warminster Community Hub, Central Car Park;

Al Summers and C. Linham Butchers, Chinns Court; Cornmarket Café; David Wiltshire Photography, George Street; Le Cafe Journal and

S.L. Corden And Sons, High Street; the Foodbank on North Row; Coates and Parker, Market Place; J. and K. Burton Animal Feeds and Raves From The Grave, Weymouth Street;

Weymouth Arms, Emwell Street.
