Cllr Liz Little, cabinet member for major projects and economic development, said:

“I am pleased that Lichfield District Council is be able to support the County Council and NHS by locating a mobile testing unit in Lichfield and enable more local access to testing.

“I hope that users of the car park will understand the need for the car park closure and hope that it doesn’t cause too much disruption.”

  1. Where is the photograph if Mr Fabricant claiming another victory for his tireless campaining. Could it be he was informed of the plan earlier this week and then issued a press release calling for a testing centre to be situated in the city? Hey presto, the magical powers of El Fabbo in full effect.
    No I am not cynical, you are.

  2. Looks like some people need some track and trace help to locate the car park. It is the University one, you know the one next to the University, part of the University campus, where the sign for the University is, in Lichfield, by the University.

  3. I wonder if they do free IQ tests at this place, because you have to wonder how some people manage to operate day-to-day when they can’t even decipher the most basic of information.

  4. I queued all day at The Friary School to get tested as a bloke down the road said it was in the Friary car park.

    Anyway I eventually got tested and good news is I passed my mock GCSE in Geography, which is nice.

  5. It’s about time fabricant had a two way communication system, his one way email is pathetic.

    You ask him a simple question and you get a silly response that has no answer with no way to continue

    He is a useless representative
