Erewash Borough Council has the following markets: Ilkeston Town Centre Market – Each Thursday and Saturday. Long Eaton Town Centre Market – Each Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
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: No, as per charter. Not currently covered in the market policy, although this is currently being re-written and will include reference to fur. The markets are inspected weekly and any selling fur should be noted and acted upon.
Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Councillor Michael Powell, Lead Member for Regeneration and Planning, email: Councillor.Michael.Powell@erewash.gov.uk
