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 is growing due to an influx of new members.

As a result, we now have a small and dedicated committee, chaired by Richard Thomas, a Liberal Democrat councillor on Rother District Council. Amongst other things, the committee actively promotes the Liberal Democrats locally and becomes involved in matters of interest to local people. We are of course, 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.

Bexhill has recently moved a step closer to getting a town council. Rother District Council's cabinet has agreed to proposals to bring about a town council, with elections scheduled to take place in May 2021. The Liberal Democrats have long supported the concept of having a Bexhill Town Council, and 78% of local residents who responded to a consultation on the issue were in favour.

We are an active and friendly Branch and in normal times enjoy informal social gatherings, and sometimes put on local community events. Sadly, due to the current pandemic, these things are on hold for the time being. However, at the time of writing, subject of course to making sure that we comply with current Government restrictions.

Sadly, we have made the decision that we should not continue to meet at The Denbigh pub/restaurant on the third Wednesday of each month until the pandemic situation has improved, or it is possible to meet in the garden again. We send all Liberal Democrat members and supporters our good wishes for the coming months.
