Leyburn Town Council has the following markets: Weekly Friday market, Monthly Sunday 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 can confirm that the Markets run by Leyburn Town Council do not sell any real fur. When traders apply for a pitch on the market they have to fill out an application stating exactly what is to be sold and this has to then be approved by Councillors before they can trade.
However, we are unaware of any official policy documents or guidelines to enforce this. They have asked to see our fur free markets policy.
Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Charlotte Smith, Clerk to the council, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
