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: We would ask stall holders to withdraw products if brought to our notice

Although the council agreed to consider our Fur Free Markets scheme, they have since informed us:

it has been decided that for the time being our informal policy of not allowing fur is sufficient.

This is disappointing.  No market can ever be fur free if it has a policy of being reactive rather than proactive.
