Tribute to former Councillor Christine Long


“We were very sorry to hear of the sad passing of former Councillor Christine Long.

Chris was a much-loved Residents Association Councillor who served Epsom & Ewell Borough Council for 16 years. She was a valued Ward Councillor in Auriol Ward from 1999 to 2015, alongside being involved in a wide range of Committees, Groups and Advisory Panels at the council, and representing the council at other organisations. She was Chair of the Scrutiny Committee from 2000-2003 and the Social Committee from 2007-2010, as well as being involved in the Environment, Leisure, and Strategy & Resources Committees amongst others during her time as Councillor.

From May 2012-May 2013, Chris was our elected Mayor, and carried out a huge range of community engagements, charity fundraising and activities during this time. She was also heavily involved with the church, the Rotary Club and was a member of the Surrey Mayor’s Association. 

We know Chris will be much missed and we send our deepest condolences to her family and friends.”

Councillor Hannah Dalton, Chair of the Residents’ Association, and Jackie King, Chief Executive of Epsom & Ewell Borough Council.
