An error which caused a price hike for parking next to the Windmill Cinema has been corrected thanks to eagle-eyed residents.

Jilly Lynn, a volunteer at the Windmill Cinema, noticed the parking charge in the West Green car park had increased from £7 for over three hours to £7 for over two hours.

She contacted Graham Leigh-Jones, chairman of the Windmill Cinema Supporters Group, who in turn spoke with Arun District Council.

The council explained that a mistake to the signs for the summer tariffs had been made by a contractor, and it had now been corrected. A spokesman said: “The change in the summer charges, agreed last year for West Green, was £1.50 for one hour, £3 for three hours and £7 for parking all-day.” This covers March 1 to July 1, when the all-day charge is increased to £8.

Mr Leigh-Jones said he ‘took immediate action to support the cinema’.
