Bexhill De La Ware

Contact: bexinfo@bexhillandbattlelibdems.org.uk

Within the parliamentary constituency of Bexhill and Battle, which covers a large geographical area, Bexhill is the most populous town. Reflecting the steadily increasing population of the town, the Bexhill Branch acquired new members.

As a result, we now have a small and dedicated committee, chaired by Richard Thomas, a Liberal Democrat councillor on both Rother District Council and the recently formed Bexhill Town Council, the formation of which the Liberal Democrats strongly supported. Amongst other things, the committee actively promotes the Liberal Democrats locally and becomes involved in matters of interest to local people. We are naturally very busy at times leading up to local and national elections, and particularly welcome offers of help or assistance from members or supporters at those times.

We are an active and friendly Branch and in normal times enjoy informal social gatherings, and sometimes put on local community events. These activities have, of course, had to be curtailed, due to the pandemic, in line with Government restrictions, but we are looking forward to the end of these restrictions, hopefully in the near future.

We are very pleased that our regular meet up at The Denbigh pub/restaurant at 7.00 p.m.on the third Wednesday of each month, has been able to resume, in the garden. All Liberal Democrat members and supporters are very welcome. Enjoy an informal chat with like-minded people about politcs, current affairs, or anything that takes your fancy..

Our Branch AGM will be held this year on Saturday 23 October 2021 at 11.00 a.m. in the Bagnall Room of Bexhill Caring Community, Sackville Road.

The Agenda will be sent out nearer the date.

Tea/Coffee will be served.

The meeting will be finished by 12.30 p.m. at the latest at which time the Committee will be heading to the Wickham Bistro, Wickham Avenue for lunch. If you would like join us for this lunch, please let me know on bexinfo@bexhillandbattlelibdems.org.uk by 14 October at the latest in order that we can let the Bistro have numbers.

Kind regards

    Dear Editor



    Professor Sir Robert Watson is a world authority on Climate Change. He has been the Chief Scientist of the World Bank and also the Chief Scientific Adviser to the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

    So his opinions ought to be listened to and respected.

    He has just said that whilst the UK Government is setting targets to tackle both the climate crisis and the problem of the depletion of nature, it is lacking in bringing forward any policies which will achieve such aims, otherwise such targets are meaningless.

    He highlighted that the Government's own advisers have stated the UK will not, on the basis of what it is proposing now, reach its key goal of reducing emissions by 78% of 1990 levels by 2035.

    He also pointed out that the progress on legislation to introduce environmental protection legislation is stalled in Parliament, with all the signs that those arguing for weaker legislation than applied when we were members of the EU, are winning the day in the House of Commons.

    He argued that since the UK is hosting the November COP26 world climate change summit in Glasgow, we should already be leading the way in not just setting targets but in starting to put policies into action.

    The climate emergency will not wait while Boris fiddles and dithers.



    Yours faithfully

You may have moved house since the electoral register was drawn up and have not yet joined the register at your new address, or are not registered then you will need to register to vote (register here) .
    You can choose either to vote by post or to appoint someone else - a proxy - to vote on your behalf.
