The Epsom & Ewell Liberal Democrats are local residents who work to promote a fair, free and open society. We raise our funds without any subsidy from governments, unions or businesses. For further information, please contact FOCUS@epsom-ewell-libdems.org.uk.

We believe that governments and councils should provide the services people need, without imposing unnecessary limits or needlessly restricting individual freedoms. If you agree with this, help us to change Britain's future for good by joining the Liberal Democrats HERE.
