Welcome to the LOSRA Website

As with any other local neighbourhood, the policies and actions which affect the character and future of Lower Sunbury are generally framed and implemented by a combination of local and national government, along with the vested interests and market forces which operate within those frameworks. Lower Sunbury is by no means unique in being under threat from a creaking infrastructure brought about by rapid urban development, the growth of traffic, and other pressures affecting the quality of life and the character of the area.

Working with the local authorities, we see it as the responsibility of residents’ and amenity groups such as LOSRA to address the underlying issues which fundamentally affect their members’ lives, as well as the minutiae of everyday life with which such groups are often concerned.

Please sign up to receive our regular e-bulletins by subscribing via the facility at the top left hand of this page. It goes without saying that, without your continued support we would cease to function so we urge you to join, or renew your membership now Subscriptions (£5 per household) for 2016 are now payable.

Sunbury Health Centre's Patient Participation Group (PPG) was established two years ago to represent patients of the Centre, receive input from local people about the Centre's services, and to provide its patients with news and information on what SHC does, and how it is changing.

​The PPG works closely in partnership with the Practice to help drive much needed change forward. Open Meetings are held three times a year where all patients are welcome to come along to hear about the many developments and improvements that have been made and understand the challenges facing SHC. It is also an opportunity to voice your views and ideas.

Patients are invited to attend the next open meeting which will take place at the Health Centre from 6.30pm - 7.30pm on Monday 7th November.

Working to Make Surrey Prepared

Rate this item

Would you like to help your home and the community you live in be prepared for anything, from flooding to very cold weather? A new initiative, Surrey Prepared, aims to help people in Surrey do just that by providing the information and resources they need to help make their communities stronger and more resilient.

Unfortunately major incidents can and do happen in Surrey – just two and a half years ago the county experienced such severe flooding that the army was called in to provide support. We’ve seen that communities who come together during incidents are better off, whether from how they dealt with the outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease to the way communities respond to large fires.

Surrey County Council has worked with its partners to launch the Surrey Community Resilience Partnership. The partnership will help communities build resilience and protect homes under the Surrey Prepared initiative, with everything from advice on developing a community emergency plan to training, resources to help you prepare for major incidents and even help with getting funding to help make your community more resilient. The aim is to support households and communities to prepare in advance of any incident so they are safer and better informed, as well as encouraging stronger communities all year round.

Andrew McCormack is a composer and pianist who is realising the best work of his career, thus far. Since bursting on to the scene in 2007 with his debut album, Telescope, McCormack has been the driving force behind A-list jazz artists Kyle Eastwood, Eric Alexander, Denys Baptiste and Jean Toussaint as well as a host of home-grown talent including Jamie Cullum and Jason Yarde.

He has been performing extensively around the world, and selected the UK as the starting point in support of his critically acclaimed latest album, First Light.

The new trio album, written and recorded in Brooklyn, New York, represents perhaps McCormack's greatest achievement to date in his composition and performance - recognised as such by critics, musicians and the public - placing him comfortably and confidently on a worldwide stage.

Developing and honing a skillfully original approach to writing and performance in the jazz tradition, McCormack has captivated audiences with his emotional and expressive style; combined with a yearning, emotive aesthetic which might be best described as quintessentially British.

His move to New York has added an even greater sense of swing, dynamic group interplay and a mesmeric live sound. The result is a world-class pianist and formidable composer, who has arguably earned a seat at the top of the jazz trio talent roster anywhere around the globe.

The performance will start at 7.30pm on 6th November at the Riverside Arts Centre, 59, Thames Street. Tickets £10 on the door or £8 in advance via website: www.moodindigoevents.co.uk.
