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: LSD Promotions and Tamworth Borough Council are very committed to preventing the sale of fur on the markets. As far as we are aware there are no traders selling real fur in Tamworth.
We are seeking clarification from Tamworth Borough Council on their policy regarding the sale of fur at events managed by their Arts and Events Team.
Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Cllr Steven Claymore, Portfolio holder for Regeneration, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
