Chipping Sodbury Chamber of Commerce launched The ‘Park & Walk’ initiative, encouraging the business people of Chipping Sodbury to park at the Ridings Rugby and Football Club Monday to Friday, rather than using up invaluable limited parking spaces in the High Street or Town Car Park.
This means visitors have more free parking available when driving in to the town. In-conjunction with Coffee Howes, Toll House Clinic, The Health Food shop and 29 Design… Free Coffees and the occasional Hot Chocolate were handed out in eco friendly branded reusable mugs to over a dozen business people who embraced the scheme between 8am and 10am this morning.
Andrew Webb (one of the Chamber Chairs) said “We enjoyed meeting everyone this morning and now that people have seen how it really is a pleasant stroll into town , with added health benefits we hope people will be inspired to continue to use the Ridings Car Park. Regular commitment from people willing to Park & Walk and the ongoing generosity of the Chipping Sodbury Town Trust offering the car park for free for workers in the High Street will helpfully encourage more visitors with better parking facilities.

We hope to repeat the Free Coffee event later in the year, but don’t forget the car park is available all year round.
