I WOULD agree with Pauline Burgess it would be wonderful if Malvern could become fur free.

The fur trade now and in the past has always caused terrible cruelty to animals for an unnecessary product.

I would like to point out that it is not just fur coats that should be avoided but fur trim on gloves, boots, belts and even cat toys! Vintage fur is no better. Just because an animal suffered 50 years ago doesn't make it any more acceptable.
