Newbury Town Council has the following markets: Thursday and Saturday weekly Charter Markets and Farmers markets; 2 Sundays a month
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: We do have one ‘retro’ clothing stall which sometimes sells old furs. We do not have a particular policy with regards to this
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 Cllr Martha Vickers, Market Working Party Chair , email: firstname.lastname@example.org and Cllr Sarah Greenall, Chair of Community Services, email: email@example.com
