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.

Sunbury Cricket Club Welcomes Big Band Jazz

Scott WillcoxThe next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 13th July, when they welcome the Scott Willcox Big Band as part of the Sunbury & Shepperton Arts Festival.

SCC are no strangers to jazz at the Club, but it's certainly the first time in their recent season of events that they are presenting big band music, with an ensemble which will be at least 15 strong, so it will be quite an impressive sound.

Please note that the band will start pretty promptly at 8pm, so make sure you're there on time if you don't want to miss anything.

There is more info at www.scottwillcox.co.uk and www.ssaa-arts.org. Tickets, £10 may be purchased on the door or are available in advance from the Festival box office at 01932 567365.

Picnic in the ParkLOSRA has pleasure in announcing the annual Picnic In The Park on Saturday 7th July and organised by Friends of Sunbury Embroidery. It’s a chance to bring your chairs, tables, candelabra and hampers to enjoy the delightful surroundings of the Walled Garden and listen to a concert by Richmond Symphonic Concert Orchestra, who will be playing a programme of film music and other similar repertoire.

Although it's summer, the vagaries of the weather so far this year make it impossible to predict the temperature, so bring something warm to wear just in case. This said, It has always proved to be a delightful evening and we’re usually lucky with the weather!

Gates to the Walled Garden will open at 6.15pm for a 7pm start. The concert will finish at approximately 9.30pm. Tickets are now available in the Embroidery Gallery. £12.50 adult and £6 for under 12s.

The following self-explanatory email from the Community Development Officer, SBC, has been received by LOSRA:

You and all member of your association, are invited to this year’s Spelthorne Together Assembly.

It will be on Thursday 27 September at Kempton Park racecourse.

Please distribute this email as widely as possible. Feedback from previous years strongly indicates that “new faces” should be encouraged to attend.

Bookings are required from those delegates who wish to attend the entire event and take part in the presentations / workshops

In a departure from previous years - for those who do not wish to attend the entire event, the popular “marketplace” with stands from dozens of local organisations, will be open throughout for casual visitors to drop in. No booking is required for this.

Stands will include the public sector (Spelthorne Council, Surrey Police, Surrey Fire and Rescue, NHS and so on); community and voluntary organisations including Age Concern, CAB, VAIS, Crest, Crossroads etc; private sector such as Heathrow and Spelthorne Business Forum.

We are planning to put on a borough map display of Residents’ Associations, showing location and areas represented, along with contact details.

This follows the exercise undertaken late last year where RAs were asked to provide details of where their members live.

Please use the online booking facility.

Surrey Police Change to One Number

LOSRA has today been informed that The old Surrey Police contact number 0845 125 22 22 is now permanently out of service.

The single non-emergency contact number is 101 or 01483 571212 can still be used if preferred.

Please only use 999 in a genuine emergency.

London IrishThe London Irish applications for their Avenue site and Hazelwood Golf Centre were finally determined by Planning Committee on 21st June. Readers will be aware that the Planning Officer recommended approval of all three proposals and, after much debate, the Committee duly approved the development of Hazelwood but with conditions yet to be agreed.

The alternative scheme for The Avenue site, with its higher proportion of family homes and no flats, was also approved; and resulted in the original much denser scheme being withdrawn.

LOSRA has fought long and hard over the last 3 years - and much harder than some might suppose, to resist these developments but must now accept that the campaign is over. At the very least, and through the persistence of local campaigners, a plan which falls below even the minimum density prescribed in the Council's own planning policy has been agreed.

REMINDER - Sunbury Summer Market, 24th June

Sunbury Summer MarketThe Sunbury Summer Market will be making a very welcome return on Sunday June 24th from 11am – 4pm in Avenue Parade. This date has been moved from June 3rd as there were deemed to be too many clashes with other Jubilee activities.

Stalls will be selling food, gifts, clothing and there will be a face painter to decorate your children! The Lower Sunbury Business Community looks forward to welcoming local residents and outside visitors who may be in Sunbury for Open Gardens. If you are available and willing to help put up and take down stalls your help would be appreciated. Please speak to Dennis at Van Wonderen flowers, Avenue Parade.
