Could I just remind Rothbury residents that there is a free car park over the bridge on the south side of the river.
As there is a footbridge from this car park into the town (a two/three minute walk), this is very accessible amenity for motorists.
Also, by using this car park, it would greatly help the congestion in the town centre. Delivery vans and pedestrian safety would benefit.
I therefore beseech people to use this free car-parking facility and make shopping and walking a safer and more pleasurable experience for residents and tourists alike.
