A PENSIONER who spent over four hours doing her Christmas shopping at the Peterborough Walton aptly named Brotherhood retail park was sent a £100 penalty for spending too long in each of the shopping parks festive retail stores. (The Mafia is also known in some circles as 'The Brotherhood'). Now local community groups are set to stage a series of protests including leafleting, to warn shoppers to go elsewhere, if they don't want to be lumbered with a £100 penalty, for overstaying their welcome.
Anita Henry, from Ramsey Mereside, received a £100 shock penalty demand in the mail, after her special Christmas shopping trip to the Brotherhood Shopping Park, in Lincoln Road, Walton lasted over 4 hours. She said later the unwelcome penalty totally ruined a perfect day.
The London based managing agents Savills who run the property for tenants such as Marks & Spencer, H&M, Asda, Harveys, Paul Simon, Costa Coffee and Next, imposed a strict three-hour time limit to its car park earlier this year, long before the PCC announced its bus service cuts.
Cars are automatically logged when entering and leaving the privately run shopping park. London style £100 penalty notices are sent to those who dare to continue shopping over the 3 hour limit. Mrs Henry clocked up four and a half hours of shopping, blissfully unaware that her shopping bill had also clocked up another £100. No one at Savills was available to comment.
