The frequency of parking attendants visiting Stoke Madeville Stadium car park has increased and we would therefore like to remind you that if you park in a 'disabled bay' without displaying a blue badge you will be issued with a parking charge. And... in this instance, we understand the charge will be unable to be cancelled despite legitimate reasons for parking at the Stadium even with an excluded registration number.
The 3 hour limit and registration of vehicle registration numbers still stands so please inform us of any new or updated registrations that will be passed to MET parking to be permanently excluded any time related charges. Please also note at large events where a high frequency of unregistered vehicles are occupying the car park, the cameras may be turned off. This can be confirmed at reception if this is the case.
If you have any questions in regards to parking at the Stadium, please do not hesitate to contact Vickey Hawkes, Events Manager.

For those of you who have sent Michelle Weltman information for your entry into the Westminster mile, please ensure you fill in the online registration. Those who did the normal online registration will be transfered over to the wheelchair race. Make payment on line rather than send Michelle a cheque.
