Local support for people with epilepsy

The photo above was taken from the society's AGM on 21st May 2019.

On the extreme right is Stephen Aselford. It is with great sadness that we heard the news that Stephen passed away in September. 


“The Funeral starts at 10.30am at Croydon Crematorium, Mitcham Road, Croydon, CR9 3AT. Commemoration event to be held from noon at Ruskin House, 23 Coombe Road, Croydon, CR0 1BD.

We are inviting people to wear red for the occasion to reflect both Stephen’s socialism and his love of London buses!

All welcome to come and share your happy memories of Stephen’s life and activism.”

Stephen was a long-time campaigner for disabled rights as a key member of Disabled People Against Cuts 


In the centre of the photo is Dawn Gibbons our Honorary Secretary, flanked on the left by our Chairman, Marco Valencia , and on the right by our local MP, Sarah Jones - thanks to Sarah for her support again.


We will remember on November 9th 2019 that it will be the 3rd Anniversary of the tragic Croydon Tram Crash when seven people lost their lives in 2016.
