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.

Spelthorne Council announces that its efforts to create a clean, green and colourful borough were recognised at this year’s prestigious South & South East in Bloom Awards.  At the awards, held in Fareham on 14 September, Spelthorne Council beat off competition from hundreds of entrants to pick up three awards. 

The ever-popular Sunbury Walled Garden claimed the top-spot, receiving a Gold award and being declared overall winner in the Small Park category for the fourth year running. 

There was more good news for Spelthorne with Staines and Sunbury Cemeteries both gaining Silver Gilt awards in the Best Cemetery category.

The annual competition is designed to encourage councils, residents and businesses to work together to improve the local environment and make towns and cities greener and cleaner. Expert judges toured the region in June and July and awarded marks based on a range of criteria.

American born alto saxophonist, Allison Neale’s beautifully crafted lines evoke the spirit of Paul Desmond and Art Pepper with whom she has a particular affinity.

As a strong advocate of the melodic West Coast style she has performed alongside leading international artists such as Adelaide Hall and Bud Shank; and more recently tenorist Scott Hamilton as well as featuring in both the John Dankworth ‘Generations‘ Band and the “Back to Basie’ Orchestra. She frequently tours the UK with her own Quartet but on this occasion will be accompanied by Terrence Collie, piano; Richard Sadler, bass; Emiliano Caroselli, drums. Her latest CD " I Wished on the Moon " was released in January 2015 on the Trio Records label and features the quartet as well as Milt Jackson influenced vibraphonist Nat Steele.

“ Allison Neale plays the alto saxophone with a tone so light and airy it positively melts at the edges” Dave Gelly , The Observer. “ A talent to savour” Peter Vacher Jazz UK.

Venue and start time: The Riverside Arts Centre, 59,Thames Street at 7.30pm. Tickets £10 on the door or £8 pre-booked through www.moodindigoevents.co.uk.

Surrey County Council has launched a consultation giving residents and businesses the chance to have their say on the vision for the new Surrey Waste Local Plan. The new plan will make sure enough land is available so that facilities can be built to manage the waste Surrey households and businesses produce, in the most sustainable way.

To raise awareness of the consultation and to ensure residents have the chance to have their say, SCC have asked LOSRA to give it publicity.

The consultation will run until 25th November and residents can have their say by completing the questionnaire online at surreycc.gov.uk/newwasteplann or can request a copy by calling 0300 200 1003.
