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 2018 are now payable.

SUNBURY ADULT LEARNING CENTRE, which is situated in The Avenue, offers a wide variety of courses such as ballroom and Latin American dancing, calligraphy, languages, photography, pottery and upholstery. There are Saturday workshops and a range of Supported Learning classes. The programme includes lip reading courses and English as a Foreign Language.

This is a great way to make friends while learning a new skill or brushing up on one. The Centre offers discounts for over 60’s not in full time employment (20%) and those on certain benefits (50%). The Autumn/Spring programme is available from 2nd July.

For further information phone 01932 794514 or click here for course information.

Sunbury and Shepperton Arts Festival

The Sunbury and Shepperton Arts Association has great pleasure in announcing its summer Festival. There is something to suit all tastes, including comedy, big band, classical music, a balalaika band and a celebrity luncheon with Phyllida Law. For details of all events click here.

London IrishDespite a very long 3 year campaign and two refusals on appeal, it will come as a great disappointment to read that the Planning Officer now recommends approval of the development of The London Irish Avenue Site and the Hazelwood Golf Course.

As mentioned on this Site before, the refusals on appeal were heavily qualified by the Planning Inspector and it was only a matter of time before London Irish would carefully examine the caveats contained within the Planning Inspector's report and submit further applications. This they have now done and the Planning Officer's reports may be viewed by clicking here.

Sunbury Open Gardens DayThe tenth anniversary of the Sunbury Open Gardens promises to be the best yet, with even more gardens to visit than usual.  (www.sunburyopengardens.co.uk)

From a cottage garden with a Thai theme, to Sunbury’s premier garden at Monksbridge, there is something for everyone. Walk where Prince Edward met for trysts with his mistresses before Wallace Simpson came on the scene.  Take in the Italianate or ponder over a plantswoman’s pride and joy.  There will be the work of others to enjoy and ideas to take away and you will be helping to raise funds for the Shooting Star Chase Children’s Hospice and St Mary’s Church.

Homemade cakes and jams, books, plants, teas and cakes and refreshing drinks are all on offer; together with a mega raffle with prizes from a flat screen TV to tickets for the Hampton Court Flower Show. Tickets for the gardens are £4 in advance (£5 on the day) from Skinners in the Avenue, from the Sunbury Embroidery Gallery, or by telephoning Sue on 019327 786675.

Burmese Blue Has Gone Missing

Burmese Blue Has Gone MissingAnswering to the name of 'Blue' this neutered 8 year old male cat has gone missing from the School Walk/Lyndhurst Avenue area.

He was last seen on the morning of the Monday Jubilee bank holiday and is known to have quite a range in his travels. He has gone missing before but has always previously returned within 24 hours.

Residents in the vicinity are asked to check sheds or other outbuildings in which he might have taken shelter during the changeable weather we have been experiencing.

If you think you may have seen him or know of his whereabouts please contact 07515 637474.
