Many Much Wenlock businesses will be relying on the Christmas trade in order to thrive. They are working hard to make a success of the festive season, with many shops opening late on Thursday until Christmas. Remember that you can ‘Pop and Shop’ by parking free for a maximum of fifteen minutes in the car parks in New Road, Back Lane, Falcons Court and St Mary’s Lane. If you’re going to park for more than fifteen minutes you must pay the fee from your time of arrival, but this can be as little as 10p at New Road. There is free parking on Sunday.
