Car Park stickers - FAQ

Q:  How can I get a Car Park sticker?

A:  Just sign up to Become a Friend: follow the links from this page.

Q:  As an existing Friend/Member, when will I get a new Car Park sticker?

A:  The current stickers showing 2018-19 are those which will be needed to benefit from free parking from January 2019. If you think you should have had one and have not received it, do get in touch.

Stickers for 2019-20 will be distributed to paid up Friends and Members before the end of March 2019, and those will be needed after 1st April 2019 in order to continue being exempt from the £3 daily Car Park charge.

Q:  I've received a Car Park sticker I don't need - what should I do?

A:  We send one sticker by default to Individual and Concession subscribers, and two stickers to Family subscribers. If you have received one you don't need, or two when you only need one, then please do let us know so that we can update our records. Now that a sticker allows free parking, we can no longer claim Gift Aid on those subscriptions; hence, if you decline a car sticker then your subscription is worth more to us.

If you're able to send the unwanted sticker back to our Registered Office address, we will be glad to re-use it. Thank you.

Q:  Can I get an extra Car Park sticker for my other car?

A: NO.  As a Friend at Individual rate or Concession, you are entitled to one sticker only. A Family subscription entitles you to maximum of two car stickers, the subscription covering up to 2 adults at the same address.

Q:  I've lost my car sticker, can I get a replacement?

A: YES, BUT  there is a charge of £10 for replacing lost stickers; this charge is to cover the additional administration costs.

Q:  My 'sticker' doesn't stick!

A:  The 'stickers' we have produced are in fact a 'static self-cling' style (chosen so as not to leave a sticky residue on your windscreen). Once peeled off their paper backing, they should stick easily to your windscreen. If you find that yours doesn't want to stick, try cleaning the windscreen first and that should improve matters.

If you value Magog Down and would like to help keep it open for all to enjoy, why not contribute towards the costs of upkeep by making a donation or becoming a Friend? Friends also park for Free! (For other visitors, a daily charge of £3 is now in force.)

It costs £15 per year for an Individual to be a Friend, or £25 for a Family subscription (entitled to two car parking stickers); there is a Concession rate of £12 for individuals over 60. There is more information on our Join Us page, or just click on the links below to sign up.







Magog Down is managed largely by Volunteers: Trustees who give their time freely, and many others who help with various practical tasks, whether as a regular commitment or on an occasional basis. Nevertheless, annual upkeep costs around £50-60,000, only a small portion of which is met by government grants.
