For ease of parking in Stroud.
The District Council have waived the 10p booking fee for using the MiPermit free app on phones to pay for car parking in thier car parks.

This means: -

* It costs the same to use the app as buying a ticket from the machine.

* You don't have to worry about change for the machine.

* You can extend your stay whilst in town without having to return to the car park

* You can pay in advance or when you arrive.

If you are unsure about using the app or how it works.
Stroud Chamber of Trade have compiled a short video showing how it works.

The New Set Up.

* A one way system will be in place -
Please enter through the door in The Shambles and exit through the main door in the Churchyard.

* We are allowing a maximum of 10 people in at any one time. Please be patient if we ask you to wait for a short time before entry. Thank you for your patience and understanding in advance.

* Sanatiser will be available on entry & on exit.
If you handle items whilst in the market, if you sanatise before you come in, you won't contaminate anything - also if you sanatise before leaving, you won't take anything out with you, and if you can avoid touching your face whilst in, it should prevent you from catching anything. Some stalls may ask you to sanatise before touching anything.

* Face coverings must be worn unless you are under 11 or have a health problem. Please do not be upset if we ask you and you are exempt, we may not realise.

* Whilst browsing please be aware of other people and keep 2m distance where possible.

* Please note the toliets in the hall will be closed.

* These measures are designed for the safety of the stall holders and to make your shopping experience as safe and pleasant as possible under these difficult times.
