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.

All three items will be collected by a new dedicated vehicle on the same day as recycling or rubbish but at a different time. A portion of the money from the textiles collected will be donated to a local charity.

Residents can check which day their collection is by typing their postcode in to My Spelthorne or by calling 01784 451499.

A leaflet with information and the new collection calendar was delivered to residents in May together with a roll of plastic food waste liners. Residents can also re-use bread bags, salad bags and plastic carrier bags, newspaper or compostable liners to line their caddy. The calendar will also be in the summer edition of the Bulletin.

STOP PRESS!

Spelthorne MP Kwasi Kwarteng detained at Her Majesty's pleasure!

Actually, he was due to give the keynote address at the LoSRA AGM tomorrow evening, but as the Queen's Speech is delayed until Wednesday, he will have to attend the following debate and will be unable to speak at the AGM.

However, in anticipation of this, there are 2 excellent back-up speakers, one from the Environment Agency, on flooding alleviation, and Colin Squire, of Garden Centres fame, who is also President of the Sunbury & Shepperton Local History Society. The Riverside Arts Centre is air conditioned, so please come along at 8pm - it'll be really cool!

Spelthorne Goes Electric

Spelthorne Borough Council has announced the introduction of electric vehicle charging points at two of its car parks in Staines-upon-Thames.

Six individual 7kW charging bays have been installed at Elmsleigh multi-storey car park and a dual 3.6kW charger which can charge two cars simultaneously at Tothill multi-storey. The charging bays are free to use* and customers simply download an app to get started.

There are currently over 100,000 plug in cars registered in the UK, a figure which is expected to grow significantly over the next ten years.

Cllr Nick Gething, Spelthorne’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Compliance, said: “The take-up of plug-in vehicles is growing all the time and we are very pleased to have added Spelthorne to the list of places where owners can ‘charge up’. As a council we are firmly committed to reducing carbon omissions and encouraging residents and visitors to choose greener, more sustainable, travel options.”

This hilarious comedy filled with double entendres and misunderstandings is a show not to be missed.

Manor Players and Shepperton Players join forces for a second time as Riverside Players to present this play based on the popular 1970s sitcom.

The staff of the men's and ladies’ wear at the Grace Brothers department store prepare to sell German goods prior to departing on a staff holiday to Spain. Despite their thorough preparations for the trip, Captain Peacock, Mrs Slocombe, Mr. Humphries, Miss Brahms, Mr. Rumbold, Mr Grainger and Mr. Lucas find that things start going wrong as soon as they arrive at their one-star Mediterranean establishment.

Sue Ford directs a cast of regulars from Manor Players and Shepperton Players who are delighted to be taking on these much-loved characters, and bring you an evening of laugh-out-loud moments. Book ahead to secure your tickets at a discounted rate.
