LSD Promotions are contracted to run all Stratford-upon-Avon Town Centre Markets. LSD Promotions have a strict No Fur policy and are members of our Fur Free Markets Scheme.
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: The decision on the stock of anyone selling on the markets through our contract would be made by LSD Promotions. If the council chose to it could put a clause in our markets contract, but there currently isn’t one.
Although this means Fur is not currently sold at this councils markets we have contacted the council to invite them to sign up to our Fur Free Markets Scheme.
Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Cllr Christopher Kettle, Chairman of the Council, email: email@example.com
