CAR PARKING AT ALL SAINTS CHURCH

The local Council have received a number of complaints, including video and photographic evidence, of illegal and inconsiderate parking in Shenley Road and Corfe Crescent. As a result, the Council will be issuing Parking Tickets to churchgoers if they infringe the traffic code. As you can imagine this is a huge source of embarrassment for the Parish and has damaged our relationship with our neighbours. I implore you to park legally and considerately in both the car park and on the public highways. Thank you for your cooperation.
