Woking Labour loses a leading light

Elizabeth-EvansIt is with great sadness that we share news that Elizabeth Evans passed away at home.

Liz has been a tour de force in our community for many years, with many notable accomplishments; of which we name but a few here. She acted as a convener for the Working Women’s Charter Campaign during the women’s movement in the 1970s; served as Councillor for Maybury & Sheerwater between 1999 and 2007; was a member of Horsell Residents Association and volunteered in local schools. Liz was, of course, also a longstanding Officer in our Executive Committee.

Ilyas Wins!Her energy, passion and ceaseless dedication were a constant source of amazement and the depth of her knowledge and experience, the envy of us all. We were glad that this service was acknowledged by the Labour Party last year, when Liz received a Labour Party Lifetime Achievement Award from Jeremy Corbyn, presented at our Joint Woking CLP/Surrey Labour Party Christmas party – one event of many, which Liz had almost single-handedly organised. 

Liz was a committed and active member of the Woking Labour Party to the end.

Her loss will be felt deeply by us all, and we will miss her very much.
