Sevenoaks District Council has the following markets: Swanley Wednesday market and Sevenoaks Wednesday and Saturday markets.
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: Yes, at Swanley Wednesday Market as the sale of real fur is not illegal. In addition, Sevenoaks Town Council who operate the Sevenoaks Wednesday and Saturday markets on Sevenoaks District Council’s behalf, choose to prohibit the sale of real fur products by stall-holders.
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 Matthew Dickins, Portfolio-holder for Direct and Trading Services , email: firstname.lastname@example.org
