October 1969 saw the distribution of the first newsletter from the British Parking Association - what would one day become the current magazine, Parking News.

First Newsletter

The newsletter began with the words:

"With this newsletter we are starting out what we hope will become the regular method of giving members technical information and news of the parking industry.

"If we are to include sufficient items of interest to warrant producing the Newsletter each month, it is imperative that we enlist the assistance of members in sending us information, details of new ventures, new products and short articles suitable for publication. Anything of interest to Parking will be welcome.

Requests for information and advice will be published and it is hopefully eventually to have a lively correspondence column.

Please tell us what you would like included and we will do our best."
