Castle Point Borough Council has the following markets: Castle Point Show annual 1 day event.
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 situation has never arisen. No stall holders have wanted to sell real fur.
We have written to the council to explain that most fur on trading stalls is a trim on the main item and therefore would not be listed in their application.
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 Andrew Sheldon, Cabinet Member for Customer Engagement and Commercialism, email:firstname.lastname@example.org
