CWaC Council: Remembrance Day, Lest we charge!

Yet another example of CWaC’s incompetence or lack of caring… this is feedback I’ve had this morning.

Chester should be rightly proud of the very many veterans, service personnel, citizens and visitors who came to pay their respects at the remembrance service and parade at the Chester War Memorial on Sunday 13 November. However CWaC are being accused of insensitivity by making money by charging for parking at the nearby Princess Street car park early on a Sunday morning.   

One veteran said “the Council makes an exception for free after 3 on weekdays, but did not for this very important occasion in our city at a time when the car park is normally empty?”
My comment: First they charge soldiers on a homecoming parade for refreshments and now veterans for parking to attend Remembrance Sunday services.

What have CWaC Council got against the armed services? Or is it just another example of their incompetence.

If you would like to view some photos of Remembrance Sunday don't bother wasting your time with Cheshire West and Chester Council's Go Cheshire Flickr pages because there aren't any. However, the Chester Chronicle did a fine job even if our council couldn't be bothered.

Neither did the Go Cheshire Tweet anything about it so it's a good job the Chester Chronicle and others did.

Cheshire West and Chester Council lest we forget they forgot!
For further info see what a Google search throws up on the CWaC Councils website about Remembrance Day and then try all other councils. It would appear that CWaC Council are in the minority, if not alone, regarding Remembrance Day publicity.
