A council continues to offer shoppers free parking in its car parks for the coming months.

Eden District Council is offering free parking at council-owned car parks until the end of August.

The council owns off-street parking at Penrith, Kirkby Stephen, Alston and Appleby.

Shoppers may still have to pay for on-street parking and car parks owned by other companies, and should visit businesses' websites for further details.

For more information on parking charges, call Eden District Council customer support on 01768 817817, or email customer.services@eden.gov.uk.
