Bio: Peter Batchelor, Communications Officer – Pete has always been involved in marketing, design and communications. From editing the youth club magazine as a teenager, to working for an advertising agency, running his own graphic design business, or lately becoming a marketing manager for a large Lincoln business.
Throughout that time Pete has also always been interested in social justice; being a youth leader, volunteering at a disabled centre, protesting against far too many wars, supporting miners and teachers and standing against apartheid. Joining Labour is Pete’s first foray in to party politics, inspired by events across the past few years. Pete was born in Winchester and moved to Sleaford a year ago after spending eight years in Greater Manchester. In his free time Pete writes and draws comics and cartoons, experiments in the kitchen, and has a growing passion for narrow boats.
