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 2017 are now payable.

For those who may be unfamiliar with Sunbury Cricket Club, it is a vibrant and unique part of the Lower Sunbury community situated at the eastern end of Lower Sunbury between Harfield Road and Kenton Avenue.

The Club provides opportunities for players between the ages of 5 and 75+ and has a club house that is open all year round for social members to enjoy a relaxed ambience.

Adult Players and Ex-Players of all Ages and Standards and Social Members Welcome

There are opportunities aplenty for current players and those wishing to return to the game.

That Sunbury CC were winners of the Surrey Championship in 2015 belies the fact that the Club fields 7 or 8 XIs every weekend and both welcomes, and needs, players of all abilities to fulfil a varied and attractive fixture list. The Club fields four XIs on Saturdays and three, sometimes four, XIs on Sundays.  There are also some mid-week fixtures. 

The lower XIs provide a competitive yet sociable standard of cricket with older players, some of them distinctly middle aged, or beyond, providing leadership to the younger players making their way up the XIs. Our oldest player is 76 this year and several others are in their mid to late 60s.

To join:  If you are interested in playing cricket or to join as a social member please contact the membership secretary at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call Peter Browne on 07802 444977.

Colts Cricket

The colts section provides opportunities for boys and girls from 5s (reception class) rising upwards.  The youngest colts start with a soft ball with an emphasis on fun, teamwork and ball skills progressing gradually the standard format of the game from the age 9 upwards through to under 17s.  Teenage colts also have the opportunity to play in the senior weekend XIs when they are ready to do so.  Parents enjoy a family membership and usage of the social facilities of the Club as non-playing members.

Younger Colts:  Parents of prospective colts in Reception through to Year 4 may enrol at the Club from 10:00am on any Sunday morning at the Club (post code TW16 5PS) from this Sunday 10th April or any subsequent Sunday.

Older Colts: Parents of prospective colts in Years 5 to Year 12 should contact John Ventham (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Social Activities

The Club hosts regular music, quiz and skittles nights. 

Its community presence is strengthened by a large hall which can accommodate up to 150 people. This is supported by a well stocked bar and is available with or without catering for parties, receptions and other forms of entertainment at competitive rates.

We publish the following notice from Spelthorne Council:

Time is running out to make sure you have registered to vote for Surrey’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) on Thursday 5 May.

Spelthorne residents can check if they are registered to vote by contacting the Electoral Services team at Spelthorne Borough Council by email at electoral.services@spelthorne. gov.uk or by calling 01784 444218. Eligible voters who are not listed will need to register themselves by 18 April. If you have moved recently or are a first-time voter you will also need to register. This can be done by visiting www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.

Registering now also ensures those people eligible to vote in the European Referendum will be able to do so on 23 June. Another benefit of registering can include improving your credit rating as credit reference agencies check the electoral register for address information.

The role of Police and Crime Commissioners started in November 2012 and they are responsible for holding the Chief Constable and the police force to account on the public's behalf, overseeing how crime is tackled in their area, and aiming to make sure the police are providing a good service. Information on all the candidates for Surrey will be posted closer to polling day on www.choosemypcc.org.uk.

John Jory, Chief Executive of Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, is the Police Area Returning Officer (PARO) responsible for the PCC elections in the Surrey police force area. He said: "Anyone not yet registered to vote should do so as soon as possible so they can have their say on issues that affect their day-to-day lives. It only takes a few minutes to complete the form and register to vote online.”

All borough and district Local Returning Officers (LROs) will be responsible for the conduct of the election in their particular areas on Thursday 5 May 2016.  They will send their verification and count results to the PARO on Friday 6 May and the PARO will manage the overall verification and count process. The PCC result announcement will be made at Donyngs Leisure Centre at Redhill on Friday 6 May.

Anyone thinking of standing as a candidate in the PCC election needs to submit their nomination by 4pm on Thursday 7 April.

For further information about the PCC election and how to stand as a candidate visit www.reigate-banstead.gov.uk/pccelection

Ever bellyached about your problems and frustrations? Naturally!

Ever been locked in the pub overnight? Probably not!

Well Jeffrey Bernard, our anti-hero, really was, and spends the time reminiscing about his riotous untidy life-style in a vulgar and witty humorous style.

If it's laughter you’re after, join him in the Coach and Horses at the Riverside Arts Centre, Thames Street, from March 31st to April 2nd.

Share his life and his loves and his friends and see just what a real journalist gets up to and just why he is unwell !
