Janet Croxon has told us today about parking fines that were issued at Needle and Awl for having a regular meal in their restaurant
“Members of my family have been given parking fines of £100 each for parking over two hours in their car park, from 3.00pm to 5.30pm.
The reason they were there so long was the poor service at the Needle and Awl. They had gone for a meal.
When they complained at the Needle and Awl they said it was nothing to do with them.
Just want to warn people, as they weren’t even there at peak time.”
The latest changes to parking policy appear to be introduced since Rushden Lakes has opened, but is 2 hours a reasonable time to allow patrons to have a simple meal and a chat? – What about if people with kids also wanted to use the Wacky Warehouse where they offer Monthly Play Passes? – Can you really have ‘unlimited play’?
