ON the evening of Friday, January 27 my wife and daughter attended a pantomime at Ossett Town Hall.
She parked her car in the Co-op car park as did several other local residents and visitors. I assume like her, a number of those received a parking fine (issued by a private parking company).
Although the Co-op will undoubtedly argue that the signs clearly state the terms of parking, it has a large car park and space is always freely available at that time of evening.
Given that the pantomime offered a chance for the community to come together in support of a local event, I believe the issuing of parking fines is an absolute disgrace.
It was an opportunity to showcase the town, but undoubtedly many visitors will now boycott Ossett.
As a local resident, I hope others follow our stance and no longer patronise the Co-op.
