Battle Branch

The Battle Branch is the beating heart of the Bexhill and Battle Liberal Democrats, providing a councillor on East Sussex County Council and three councillors on Rother District Council.

Cllr Vikki Cook is both the Mayor of Battle town, and a councillor and chair for Rother District Council. A leading figure within the Battle community and a local hero supporting youth development, Cllr Cook is a leader for the local Guides and Brownies.

Cllr Kathryn Field was first elected to East Sussex County Council in 1992 serving as a representative for Battle and its surrounding villages for over 30 years. She has used her extensive experience chairing Highways and Transportation, Education, and lead member for Transport. Cllr Field since 2007 has also represented Battle at Rother District Council, and as a member of the Rother Alliance has used her political acumen and knowledge to develop local policies in Transport and the Environment. We are delighted to welcome Cllr Chas Pearce to the Battle Branch fold, who was recently elected to represent Catsfield and Crowhurst at Rother District Council. Cllr Pearce has been established in the local community for over fifty years, and a long history of committed public service, including the Parish Council, the development of Combe Valley Country Park, supporting highway landscape design and the Neighbourhood Plan, local sports, and culture.

Behind the scenes at Battle Branch are a dedicated team of Liberal Democrat Members and supporters who are an essential and highly valued group, led by Jeremy Field who also heads up our local party’s campaign strategies.
