THE first winners in our Shop Taunton free parking promotion will be revealed in the County Gazette on Thursday.

We’ve teamed up with Taunton Deane Council to give you the chance to win a share of £1,000 in parking vouchers being given away in the run up to Christmas.

Here’s how:

  • Pick up a FREE Shop Taunton car sticker from participating retailers – click on this story at for the full list – and display it your car.
  • While on their rounds, parking enforcement officers will look out for the stickers displayed in cars in certain council car parks. They’ll note down the registration plates and each week for 12 weeks, starting today, we’ll publish two winning plates.
  • If it’s yours, all you need to do is bring us the proof and you’ll scoop vouchers entitling you to six free parking sessions to use before the end of March 2012 worth a total of up to £45. The car parks are Orchard Shopping Car Park (multi-storey); High Street; The Crescent; Canon Street; and Coal Orchard.
  • And if you don’t win, chin up, you’ll have a lovely new sticker in your car that will promote our fabulous town wherever you go.
