A recent letter complained about a £95 parking fine at Wickes in Boston. Don’t just pay these excessive fines to private companies such as G24!

Offer them a ‘reasonable’ payment (as advised on Martin Lewis’ web site).

I only had to write two letters to them after a similar fine (pointing out that I’m a regular Wickes customer) and they dropped the fine entirely.
