Half a day of free parking won’t help, says reader.

Is it just me or is the Christmas spirit dying in Honiton? Next year, if we can’t find a business to take on the expense of providing a tree, we won’t have one!

We haven’t had a late night shopping event for a few years now (yes, we are having the market on Christmas Eve but most people will only be shopping for last minute food items). We aren’t supposed to moan, because, after all, we are having free parking for an afternoon on ONE day. Wow.

Personally, I don’t see that this will encourage many people to visit Honiton at all.

Shops are struggling to stay afloat. A little more help from the council wouldn’t go amiss.
