SHOPPERS will be able to enjoy unlimited free parking at Castlepoint Shopping Park in the run-up to Christmas.

The retail park on the outskirts of Bournemouth has announced that the usual four-hour limit on free parking has been lifted over the festive period, lasting into the new year

In a post on social media, a spokesperson said: “Enjoy free parking with no time limit this Christmas at Castlepoint.

“To help with your Christmas shopping our four hour maximum free parking restriction will be removed for the Christmas period from the following dates - 22nd November to the 4th January.”

Castlepoint recently welcomed a new branch of chicken brand KFC which opened its doors last week.

The new restaurant has opened in the West Village area, creating around 40 new jobs.

Earlier this month, US burger chain Five Guys also opened a site in East Village located between Starbucks and Easy Bathrooms.
