Bassetlaw District Council has the following markets: Retford Market, Worksop 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: Traders are allowed to sell real fur but no examples have been seen
We do not have specific policies on this subject
We do not require sample policies or agreements
The Council allows the sale of fur and has refused to even consider our Fur Free Markets policy.
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 Cllr Jo White, Portfolio holder for Economic Development, email: Jo.White@cllr.bassetlaw.gov.uk
