Oadby and Wigston Borough Council has the following markets: Supersonic Boom Annual Youth Festival
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: Before a stall is booked to attend Supersonic Boom the nature, purpose and business of the stall is assessed regarding suitability, and I do not feel that a stall selling real fur items would be permitted to attend.
However they could not provide any evidence that they would know if fur was included in a vendors stock.
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 Mark Smith, Community Safety & Youth Coordinator, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
