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 2023 are now payable.

Roberto Manzin continues to be a popular session player (he recorded on eight albums in 2010, ranging in style from Pop to Latin, Rock/Blues, Ska and Jazz) and appears in music festivals throughout Europe, as well as performing regularly at many venues around Europe.

The last Music Night of 2023 at Sunbury Cricket Club on Friday 8th December, sees the return to the traditional tried and tested party formula as the Club once again features THE LIVERPOOL ECHOES. They are led by Yanni Tsamplakos, who is a great supporter of our Music Nights and has appeared at many of the Club's Christmas party shows with his band The Mersey Legends. The Club are delighted to welcome him back once more with his new line-up, with whom he appeared for the first time last year.

As always, they will give us a rip-roaring evening, performing a non-stop selection of wall-to-wall beat era classics, with Yanni on guitar and vocals, Billy Allan on guitar, John Joce on bass and Rick Daniow on drums. We can guarantee that it will be a great party night to kick off the festive season in style, so get a gang of friends together and come along for a proper rave-up.

There’s more info at www.liverpoolechoes.co.uk.

It's £10.00 on the door payable by cash or cards. Hot food will be available as usual from about 6.30pm, and the band will be on stage by around 8.45 at the latest.

The next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 24th November, and features BAD INFLUENCE, which is a change of plan from the previously advised schedule, which listed SKELETON CREW. Unfortunately, they have a health issue in the band and have had to pull out, so BAD INFLUENCE stepped forward from their scheduled February date to fill the slot.

BAD INFLUENCE is one of our most popular bands, and have done some storming shows for the Club, including headlining one of their Beer Festivals, so we are always delighted to welcome them back as it’s been well over a year since they last played at the here.

They feature Val Cowell on guitar and vocals, Richard Hayes on guitar, Pete Stroud on bass, and Johnny Brister on drums, performing their distinctive brand of hard-hitting up-front blues/rock, blending original material from their albums with interpretations of material from the likes of Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitt and Fleetwood Mac. It will be a fine evening of archetypal Sunbury Music Night fare. There’s more info at www.badinfluence.org.uk.

It's £10.00 on the door payable by cash or cards.

As previously noted, we are starting the shows a bit earlier these days, as the room tends to be full by about 8.30, so the band will be on stage by about 8.40 - 8.45.  The bar is open from 6pm and hot food will be available from around 6.30. It promises to be a great night and we look forward to seeing you there. The fliers for the event are attached - please share them with any friends who might be interested. We look forward to seeing you there.

This year’s Sunbury Christmas Market, organized by the Lower Sunbury Business Community (LSBC). is being held on Thursday 7th December between 5pm and 8.00pm on Avenue Parade (outside the shops) in Lower Sunbury.

It's one of the highlights of the social calendar and always well attended. It promises gift and food stalls, meet Santa (5pm - 7pm) and carols with the Salvation Army (6:30pm).
The road will be closed to traffic during the event and the money raised will be used for the Sunbury community. As in previous years, LOSRA will have a stall at the market so do feel free to pay us a visit!
It will be a most enjoyable evening for both adults and children judging from previous successful years!

The following link, if true, reveals a very worrying description of the Environment Agency and its failure to discharge many of its core functions in relation to the river Thames.

It is emphasised that the account comes from one anonymised whistle-blower only and, at the time of writing, the EA has not responded.
