I am really pleased Hereford BID was again able to organise  the Christmas free parking across the city. It will help boost footfall across the BID area with shoppers and dinners visiting the city for late night shopping. Hereford City Life will host Christmas entertainment and attractions providing fun and excitement during the festive period. This year will also feature a very special photo opportunity for all the visitors.
