Gloucester City Council has the following markets: Eastgate Indoor Market, Kings Square Market, Farmers Market, Hempsted Meadow Car Boot and 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: I’m 99% sure that we do not allow real fur in the market but will allow faux fur. We do not currently have any policies or agreements in place but would certainly welcome some wording to put onto our agreements.
However, we are unaware of any official policy documents or guidelines to enforce this.
Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Councillor Paul James, Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economy, email:email@example.com
