Joanne Hughes from Grindleton is the lucky recipient of a Long Stay car park permit, valid for 12 months, courtesy of the Shop Clitheroe scheme and Ribble Valley Borough Council.

Joanne’s card was drawn out at the Shop Clitheroe Superdraw to celebrate the third anniversary of the scheme, launched and run by Clitheroe Chamber of Trade and Commerce to reward consumers who regularly shop in the town.

Born and brought up in Yorkshire, Joanne is married to Keith with whom she enjoys walking their dog, as well as painting and gardening for hobbies. Joanne worked in the NHS and the private sector as a radiographer for 36 years and has recently established a practice as a reflexologist.

On being informed of her good fortune, Joanne said: “Winning the permit is great news as we regularly walk our dog at Slaidburn and park on the RVBC car park by the green, so we will no longer need to worry about hurrying back to the car. I am a regular shopper in Clitheroe and would encourage everyone to get a Shop Clitheroe card.”

Shop Clitheroe cards are available free to members of the public from all participating businesses where you see the purple castle logo. Prizes are awarded every month, with special prizes at Christmas and during the Food Festival.
