  • Welcome to Bexhill and Battle Liberal Democrats. We update our website very regularly and we hope it will tell you all you need to know about what the LibDems are doing both locally and nationally.

    In Rother we form a significant part of the ruling Rother Alliance, providing three of the nine Cabinet posts including both Environmental briefs, and at County we form the official opposition. If you would like to get involved at any level we would love to hear from you.

    Our Councillors are here to serve you, so please don't hesitate to get in touch, and please do check the website regularly.

    We must rebuild as a fairer, greener and more caring country in the aftermath of Covid.

    Boris Johnson has utterly failed to deliver an ambitious programme

    So it is crushingly disappointing that the Government's plans will fail on every account - still failing small businesses and the self-employed, still not rising properly to the climate challenge and still ignoring millions of people caring for loved ones at home.

    In the Lords we get to grips with the detail of the legislation and improve it; we take part in debates on a whole range of issues; and we question and hold to account government ministers.

    The Denbigh Pub,LittleCommon Road, Bexhill-on-Sea, TN39 4JE
    Join the Bexhill Lib Dems in the Denbigh pub in Bexhill, on the third Wednesday of every month, for 'Pint & Politics' -- informal discussions on politics and current affairs. All welcome, even non-members. This is a relaxed opportunity to meet your local party and find out how you can get involved, or just chat over a pint, or a cup of tea. The food is good at the Denbigh too. We usually meet in the back room of the pub, but the Denbigh has a great beer garden.

    We have decided that Autumn Conference will take place from 17th to 20th September. It will be held online. That was a very difficult decision to take and we had a very lengthy discussion about it.

    We recognise that a lot of people would like to meet again in person - believe me, so we would we - but the question is whether, at this time, we can absolutely guarantee that conference could go ahead in the format that we know and love. Having consulted a range of others, FCC considered, with some reluctance, that it was not possible at this time to give such a guarantee. Although things are now a lot better in terms of the pandemic, we do not know if there are any final bumps in the road still to come. Medical experts say they expect a third wave in the Autumn but the extent is not yet clear. Of course, things seemed better in the early Autumn of 2020 but then took a marked turn for the worst a few months later. We do not, at this stage, know what social distancing requirements there will be or how many people will be able to attend the venue. We therefore cannot make meaningful plans and set any meaningful budget for the event. The risk of going ahead in person but having to cancel or heavily restrict the event such that it is not inclusive, is just too great. In the same way, we take any risk to the personal safety of party members very seriously. That is why we cancelled Spring 2020. We would not want to expose anyone to any unnecessary risk of catching this dreadful virus in a close setting.

    Sharnfold Farm update - ANTI - DEMOCRATIC!

    Sharnfold Farm is a much - loved leisure amenity on the Stone Cross to Hailsham road just north of
    the A27. Sharnfold has been run as a Pick Your Own fruit farm, farm shop with coffee shop,
    woodland walk and childrens' play area with animals……

    At some point Sharnfold was sold. At first the information was that Sharnfold would continue as a
    going concern then in autumn 2020 a Planning Application revealed that the current intention is to
    build 400 houses eventually.

    Today Liberal Democrats are launching our new campaign to protect British farmers and maintain our food standards.

    The Tories failing to commit to maintaining our high animal welfare and environmental standards"

    I am deeply concerned that family farming businesses are at risk as the Tories continue to botch our transition away from the EU agricultural system.
