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.

At the AGM on 22nd June a question was put to the Chairman regarding LOSRA's position on the inclusion of Spelthorne within the fare Zone 6 and with it, the facility for commuters to use the Oyster card at rail stations within the Borough.

We have not taken a proactive position on this issue as the 'Zone 6 campaign' group already exists. (scroll down to see article of 14th June). If you wish to attend the meeting on 7th July please be sure to register your interest by clicking on the link provided.

Sunbury Health Centre offers an exciting opportunity as they plan to get ‘Arty’! Many of you will know about Sunbury Health Centre on Green Street in Sunbury and the drive the Practice and the Patient Participation Group (PPG) have been making over the past year or so to improve facilities and services. Their combined efforts are slowly beginning to pay off and there are many interesting changes and developments that have been made and planned for over the next few years. Patients are kept informed of changes through the Practice and PPG websites and three PPG Open Meetings a year.

One small step that is nearing completion is the re-furbishment of the Waiting Room. Once a poorly decorated room full of old and tired notice boards and mis-matched chairs, the area is now light, bright and professionally decorated. (The chairs are still a jumble of styles but the Practice and the PPG are working on that!). What’s needed now is a changing display of local artwork to fill the new white walls. The project will promote local artists, provide a therapeutic visual treat and may even raise some funds for future projects.

It is anticipated that work will be displayed for four months at a time. There will be no charge for displaying work but it is expected that artists will make a donation to the Practice for any work sold.

Interest is invited from individual artists and photographers as well as local art groups, organisations and schools. For further information on this exciting project, please contact the
PPG Chair, Neil Huntingford - Tel: 07973 124085 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

‘Listen very carefully, I will say this only once;’ yes there will be a stage production of the hugely popular TV comedy series ‘Allo Allo’. This is an exciting, ground-breaking joint venture between Manor Players and Shepperton Players who will go under the name of Riverside Players.

The performances will be held at the Riverside Arts Centre, Thames Street, from Wednesday from 29th June to Saturday July 2nd.

The stage version of ‘Allo ‘Allo follows the adventures of Rene, the hapless café’ owner in war torn occupied France, as he and his wife, Edith, struggle to keep for themselves a priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis and kept in a sausage in their cellar. Rene is hiding two British airmen and is endeavouring with the help of the Resistance, to repatriate them.

However, communications with London through a wireless disguised as a cockatoo add to the many embarrassments he endures in the company of his patrons. Matters come to a head with the news that the Fuhrer is to visit the town and the café becomes filled with tricksters intending to impersonate Hitler before the event. Rene will need all the wit he can muster to save his café and his life….

Tickets are already on sale. Call the Box Office 0777 145 8696 or book using your credit card via our website www.sunburyriverside.co.uk

A strong campaign team consisting of County and Borough Councillors, members of the Spelthorne Business Forum, our MP and passionate supporters, are currently in discussion with the two train companies to have been short-listed to run the rail franchise (which is up for renewal in 2017), together with Transport for London (TFL) and the Ministry of Transport.

The campaign group has over 4,000 signatures and will be holding a public meeting at the Thomas Knyvett College, Stanwell Road, Ashford, TW15 3DU on 7th July at 7.30pm; inviting the press, representatives from the education authorities, the rail companies, business and entertainment companies and Spelthorne residents.

Sunbury residents are invited to attend and are asked to register their attendance via the Eventbrite web site to be found at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. where they can also find more information about the Zone 6 campaign, answer a few questions on Surveymonkey which will be addressed at the meeting, as well as signing the petition.

The Campaign group has already received an email from a Sunbury resident supportive of the campaign, who described how she and other friends and neighbours travel out of their way to avoid paying the expensive fares from Sunbury station into London. That email is not untypical of many others received.
