Worcester news By Tom Edwards
COUNCIL chiefs have U-turned over controversial plans to charge craft fair exhibitors in Worcester £7.50 to park at the Guildhall.
After an uproar from the hobbyists, the city council has decided to ask them to pay £4.50 for all-day spaces instead. The traders, most of whom make little or no profit from the events, were featured on our front page in August, threatening to boycott the city.
About 25 stallholders regularly stage craft fairs at the Guildhall on Saturdays, and before now were allowed to park onsite at the building for free. Bosses have now relented on the £7.50 charge, and have agreed to reduce it by £3 in a bid to appease them. The stallholders still insist parking should be free, but have lifted the threat of boycotting Worcester.
