Gwynedd council have announced there will be free parking in all council owned car parks this Saturday, 2nd December 2017.

The initiate is aimed at supporting local businesses and is part of Small Business Saturday, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.

The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses. In 2017 Small Business Saturday is on Saturday, December 2nd.

On Small Business Saturday, customers across the U.K are encouraged to go out and support all types of small businesses, online, in offices and in stores. Many small businesses take part in the day by hosting events and offering discounts.

The free parking also coincides with the Bangor Christmas Cracker event, which takes place in Bangor on the 2nd and 3rd December.

Free car parking is available in Council owned car parks only.
