Shepway District Council has the following markets: Folkestone Town Centre
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?
A: we specify which items traders can sell and to date I’m not aware that we’ve ever been asked if they could sell real fur. Generally they sell food, plants, DVDs or ladies clothing/suitcases, certainly no ‘luxury’ goods or high-end expensive items.
The Council allows the sale of fur.
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 Councillor Clive Goddard, Chair of Planning and Licensing Committee, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
