A Fairy Godmother has stepped forward to offer extra spaces for Christmas motorists in Holt, where a shortage of car parking has long been a major cause of complaint.

Gresham's School in the town is allowing shoppers to park on its land off Church Street, from this Thursday, December 15, up to and including Christmas Eve. The facility, which has parking for about 40 vehicles, will not be open on Sunday.

Three local causes will take it in turns to man the pop-up car park - Holt Community Café, Bodham Playing Field, and Holt Youth Project - with proceeds boosting their coffers.
