Spelthorne Borough Council has the following markets: Staines Market – Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, Staines upon Thames Day (June)
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.
The Council allows the sale of fur. They have refused to even consider our Fur Free Markets policy.
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 Nick Gething, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Compliance, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
