Frasers Now Open!

The new Frasers opened on Wednesday 22nd November 2023, along with Sports Direct and Flannels. It means the huge department store on three floors is now trading again at the heart of the town centre. Make sure you check out their extensive range of clothing, shoes, accessories, home, and sports items.

This brand new extension is now complete, on land at Tower Street near the car park entrance. Not only extending the retail space, it also includes an IMAX style cinema too. Exciting stuff!

And a small change – Houndshill Car Park goes Ticketless

No need to fumble for a ticket when you enter the car park – or remember where you put it when you leave! In March 2024 the car park went ticketless with the installation of new ANPR machines. Simply drive up to the barrier when you arrive and it collects your registration number.

Simply remember to visit the payment machine when you return to your car – but now you don’t need a ticket. Just input your car registration number and it will automatically tell you how much you need to pay. Drive up to the barrier as you exit and hey-presto, the arm lifts without you doing anything else.

Together with freshly painted staircases and a Spring spruce-up the place is looking neat and tidy for the start of the 2024 season!
