The following email dated 26th March from Spelthorne Council has been received by LOSRA and we are pleased to reproduce it here:
NHS workers and social care staff are working tirelessly in the fight against Coronavirus and as a small gesture of appreciation, Spelthorne Council is offering these critical workers free parking in all its car parks until the end of April.
Cllr Richard Barratt, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: "As a nation, we are all extremely proud of our NHS and social care workers who are currently having to work in the most difficult of conditions. They are on the front-line in the fight against Coronavirus and working around the clock to save lives and keep people safe during this awful pandemic. We are very grateful to them and hope this initiative will make their lives just a little bit easier."
"Additionally, we have also recently announced that we are giving over the use of one of our car parks to Ashford Hospital for exclusive use by their staff."
