Here is the Council’s response to our FoI 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 arrangements in place which enable markets to be held in Cheltenham do not explicitly prohibit the sale of real fur.
The Council allows the sale of fur.
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 David Willingham, Chair of Licensing Committee, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
