Hill top parking - If you are parking at the Hill Top Tavern please be very mindful this is private car park and for those who want to visit the Tavern not just for PlaceMakers Le Race supporters. Please be very mindful that we are allowed to use their car park for a short time – it'd be great if you would support them by buying coffee or food. Portaloos will be on site for Le Race supporters to use. Please also stay off the road at the Hill Top - the road is still open to traffic.
