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.

The Beautiful Losers are a four piece Surrey-based band that play a very English take on rock 'n roll sounds of the American West Coast. Those who have been to the Cricket Club for one of their superb Friday night gigs can expect another night to remember. Those who haven't should come down and see what everyone's talking about.

Radio Wey to Broadcast Phantom of The Arts Centre

Radio WeyThe play 'Phantom of The Arts Centre', has been specially adapted by local Playwright Geoff Buckingham for broadcasting at 5pm this Remembrance Sunday, 13th November. The play touches upon events in Sunbury during World War Two and there is an interview afterwards which mentions many of the local arts groups and organisations which use the building.

It can be listened to online, by logging on to www.radiowey.co.uk and then clicking on 'listen now'

It will also be broadcast to hospitals and nursing homes at St Peters and throughout the region. The more listeners the station gets, the more likely it is to support other locsl residents' events and organisations. To view the poster, click here.

Talk by Ian DowFormer Engineering Manager with BBC TV Outside Broadcasts, Ian Dow, of Lower Sunbury, will be giving a talk on Friday, 18th November, 7.30pm at St Nicholas Parish hall, Church Square, Shepperton entitled ‘Lights, Camera, Action –oops!’ . The event is arranged by the River Thames Society and entrance costs £4 (members) and £5 (non-members).

For a man who has covered all the logistical problems of lighting, filming and sound for the Oxford Cambridge Boat Race, football matches, concerts, last night at the Proms, Animal Hospital the move of a lighthouse from the cliff edge for “Tomorrow’s World” and lightning early episodes of Dr Who, a calmer man would be hard to find.

Bogus doorstep selling

Bogus Doorstep SellingSpelthorne Council is warning local residents about door-to-door canvassers selling home insulation in the local area who are falsely claiming to work for the Council.

Letters were sent to residents throughout the summer months informing them about the Council’s home insulation schemes, run by Climate Energy, but no door-to-door calls were made.

Cllr Roberts Watts, Cabinet Member for Environment said: “The canvassers are knocking on doors claiming they work for Spelthorne Council. These people are not from the Council and they are trying to mislead and confuse residents by saying they are working with us. Residents should be very cautious if approached.”

Residents should also be aware that if they have signed up to have insulation supplied by one of these companies, the law gives them a seven day ‘cooling-off period’ during which they can cancel any contract over the value of £35, without penalty.

If residents are concerned or need more information they should contact Francesca Nesbitt at Spelthorne Council by calling 01784 446308 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
