West Suffolk Council has the following markets: Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill, Newmarket, Brandon, Mildenhall for Provisions 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

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 join the official Fur Free Markets scheme by contacting Councillor Peter Stevens, Cabinet Member for Operations, email:  peter.stevens@westsuffolk.gov.uk and Councillor Robert Everitt, Cabinet Member for Families and Communities, email: robert.everitt@westsuffolk.gov.uk
