Latest News and Announcements
As has been published recently, one of Battle’s oldest heritage buildings, The Almonry, is in desperate need of repair. Battle Town Council presented a vision for The Almonry, setting out four different options for the future of this wonderful building. The Almonry Development Working Group (ADWG), Finance & General Purposes Committee and finally Full Council, agreed the, slightly amended, recommendations for works that ensure the building is made safe and accessible for all and to support the town’s post - COVID-19 recovery through tourism. More information can be found on The Almonry project page.
Battle Health Pathway
The fantastic team behind the Battle Health Pathway project have successfully received sufficient funding to go ahead with the works, which began on Monday 13th July. We look forward to welcoming this wonderful new addition to the town.
The pandemic has had a huge effect on our community, with a number of fantastic volunteers stepping in to help those in need. We are now seeing a slowly changing environment, with high street shops opening their doors and play parks reopening. We are still sharing help and support during Covid-19 on our website as we transition through these challenging times. Battle Town Council are also offering post Covid-19 recovery grants to eligible businesses to help aid recovery. Alternatively please see gov.uk for latest COVID-19 news and guidance.
