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.

 The Lee Ryder Band Makes Debut at SCC on 28th JuneThe next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club will be held on Friday 28 June, and after a couple of events featuring familiar faces in the form of the Dave's Not Here and The '60s All Stars, the Club welcomes another new name to the Club for the first time with The Lee Ryder Band. Lee Ryder has been around the London blues scene since the '60s and is a long-time associate of Mick Taylor from the Rolling Stones. He was in a band called The Hush, who were around the fringes of the big time, and has led his own blues band for a couple of decades now, having built a formidable reputation as one of the best bluesmen on the circuit.

Alan Darby, former sideman with Paul McCartney and Eric Clapton, and who is guitarist in the band of the Queen musical "We Will Rock You" at the Dominion Theatre, is taking an night off to do this gig. Anyone who can emulate Brian May on a nightly basis should be worth seeing.

The band has an excellent web site at www.theleeryderband.co.uk, with biogs, music, videos and reviews, and there's more video on YouTube, so please check them out. You can certainly look forward to another evening of top class blues at the Club.

Residents may have attended the recent public meeting at which the progress and final construction schedule of the new Walton Bridge was discussed. If you were unable to attend, you may wish to click on the following link to update yourself on the planned road closures which will be necessary before the final opening.


Cystic Fibrosis cuts lives in half, and research into finding a cure for this crippling genetic disorder needs constant funding if young sufferers are to be given the opportunity to enjoy the length and quality of life they deserve.

On July 6th at the Riverside Arts Centre there will be an evening of fun, food, music, dancing and entertainment aimed at raising money for Cystic Fibrosis Research. Admission is by ticket only, and since the number able to be accommodated at the Arts Centre is limited, it has to be a case of first-come, first-served.

Individual tickets cost £15, or a table for 8 people costs £100.

More than half the available tickets are already spoken for, so anyone else who would like to have a good night out on July 6th while supporting the cause should contact Gerry Cook at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Minutes of LOSRA AGM

Alan Doyle - LOSRA Chairman

Regrettably, the guest speaker for our Annual General Meeting was incapacitated with a stomach complaint and was therefore unable to attend to give his presentation on the proposal to introduce cattle into Sunbury Park. We have been assured that a public consultation will be held in due course and this Website will be updated just as soon as a date has been fixed.

After eight years as Chairman, John Hirsh decided it was time to stand down and has been succeeded by Mr Alan Doyle who cut his teeth as an active member of the Police College Development Action Group (PCDAG). We wish him every success in his new role.

The AGM concluded with an open forum during which members were able to put questions. To view the minutes, click here

Burglaries in Sunbury - Police Alert

The following email from our local police has just been received by LOSRA and it is reproduced here for the attention of residents:

I am writing this email to inform you of recent suspicious activity.

In recent months Sunbury has been the target for burglaries. A recent method for burglars to see if a house is occupied is to simply knock on the door. When a door is answered they will tell the occupant that they are looking for someone in one instance it was a doctor and in another instance it was a Mr Hughes, once the door is opened they make their excuses and leave, normally along the line of "I've been sent to the wrong address" or something similar. In many cases the person or persons are wearing high visibility jackets to look official and may say they are working for the council, gas or electric company.

If you have an encounter like this please call us and let us know sooner rather than later. The quicker we know that a suspicious person is in your road we can find them and ascertain their reasons for being in the area and knocking on doors.

They might be completely innocent however police attendance could also be the difference between finding a known burglar in our area or having a burglary occur and a distressed victim.

Thank you,

PCSO Phill Wrighton 15007
