Bournemouth Borough Council

Bournemouth Borough Council has the following markets: Bournemouth Air Festival, Arts by the Sea Festival, Bournemouth Bay Run, Christmas Market

Here is the Council’s response to our Freedom of Information request:

Q: Do you allow stall holders at your markets to sell real fur? (including small items such as knitted hats with fur bobbles, or key rings with fur trims etc.

A:  Very rarely have these requests. We don’t currently have a policy for this however so they could be permitted. 

The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider.

Real fur is cruel and unnecessary. Please urge the Council to ban the sale of real fur on their markets and adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Councillor Lewis Allison, Portfolio Holder of Tourism, Leisure and Communities, email:
