South Tyneside Council has the following markets: Monday- General Market, Friday- Flea Market, and Saturday- General 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: Such incidents would be challenged if the Market team thought it was real fur.
However, we are unaware of any official policy documents or guidelines to enforce this.
Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Cllr John Anglin, Lead Member Regeneration & Economy, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
