New Year Parking Blitz

New Years Day or not, Traffic Wardens have had a blitz; out from 8am on the morning after the night before, they ticketed scores of vehicles, on Market Street, Market Place, and Eccles Road.

Have you seen this man?

Allegedly, a similar exercise was carried out in New Mills and elsewhere in High Peak.  In Chapel, many people who had gone out to celebrate New Year, and one might think wisely had chosen not to drive home and came back on New Years Day to find themselves penalised for “Staying Safe”. In other cases, local residents, used to parking near their homes and assuming that New Years Day was “Sunday Hours”, have likewise found themselves with a hefty holiday bill.
