Town always looks beautiful

The people of Battle owe their Chamber of Commerce a huge vote of thanks for their hard work in putting up Christmas lights for the past 20 years.

One of the many joys and delights of living in this wonderful little town is seeing it looking so beautiful in the festive season – the tree on the Green, Christmas trees above the shop fronts and lights strung everywhere!

Battle really punches above its weight with all the events held throughout the year and excels at Christmas.

How sad it would be if no group of younger folk were to come forward to continue to keep Battle the unique little town it is.
