Brownie Leader Given Parking Charge Notice During Remembrance Service


Michaela Clarke who runs 1st Henley Brownies was given a parking charge notice during the Remembrance Parade in Henley on the 8 November.

She parked her car in the car park in Brook House at the back of Greys Road Car Park.  Michaela said, “After unfortunately getting to the car park to find it full with the parade starting to form up and the car park being closed off, I found myself with nowhere to park.  I thought the Brook House car park was only private for the offices between Monday and Fridays and the gate was open.”

“There was no ticket on the car when I returned, I received the parking charge notice through the post.  I couldn’t believe that I was given this notice on this special day and at that time, 11.01am which is during the 2 minute silence.  I made an appeal, with proof of my Girlguiding membership card which has been refused this week.”

“The person who issued this ticket and London Parking Solutions who administer the charges obviously have no respect for Remembrance or any empathy with volunteers who give up their time for the community,” added Michaela.

We asked for a response from London Parking Solutions and at the time of going to publication, no reply had been received.

    Sorry to hear this Michaela. The parking company act on behalf of the previous landlord. The landlord has recently changed so I expect the parking managment arrangement will change shortly also. I will do what I can to assist here but it is often easier before payment is made rather than trying to get payments returned after they have been paid
