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 Council is offering residents the opportunity to take up a half-price subscription to join this year's garden waste collection service from 1 October for £26.

The collection is fortnightly and will last until the end of March 2018 (please note, there is no service for 6 weeks during the Christmas period and January).

For more details or to join visit our garden waste page at https://www.spelthorne.gov.uk/gwform or call the Customer Services team on 01784 451499.

Could You Be a School Governer?

Chennestone Primary and Beauclerc Infant schools – again rated Good by Ofsted in 2017 - are looking for members of the local community to join their Governing Body.

Being a governor is very rewarding with a range of important responsibilities, which include shaping the future of the school, deciding the key issues that will help to raise standards and determining how the school should best spend its money to achieve these aims.

No qualifications needed - just commitment, the desire to make a positive contribution, time - a couple of evenings a term - and the opportunity to occasionally visit the school ‘at work’ during the school day. Training is provided.

Please contact Helen Bingham on 01932 785477 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

Jazz vocalist Anita Wardell has been acclaimed for the unique artistry she brings to scat and be-bop singing. Raves from peers and critics alike have cemented her reputation as one of Britain’s finest vocalists.

She will be appearing in a tribute to Betty Carter at the Riverside Arts Centre, 59 Thames Street, Sunbury at 7.30pm on Sunday 1st October and will be backed by Terence Collie (piano); Oli Hayhurst (bass); and Emiliano Carroseli (drums).

Tickets £9 via website: www.moodindigoevents.co.uk or £12 on the door.

Beware Bogus Netflix Email Doing the Rounds

There's a bogus Netflix email doing the rounds this week that's designed to snatch your bank details.

An email from supportnetflix or similar is landing in peoples in-boxes warning that your Netflix account is on hold because of a problem with the last payment. A link in the email takes users to a fake Netflix page where you are invited to input your bank details.

Do NOT click on the link, instead, if you wish to verify, open a new browser and log into your account independently.

Living Well Week

Spelthorne Borough Council will be holding its second annual Living Well Week from Monday 25 September – Sunday 1 October. Designed for the over 50s, this seven-day event promotes some of the activities and services aimed at helping older people improve their health.

Leading a healthier lifestyle doesn't necessarily mean going to the gym - it could be joining a walking group or taking up yoga, line dancing, or cycling. There really is something for everyone.

As part of the event, Spelthorne’s Community Centres are offering the chance for all new visitors to try an activity for free and giving away goody bags from 25-29 September. You can also try one free session from the Get Active 50+ programme with activities such as badminton, walking football, touch tennis and jogging. Further activities are also taking place at the Spelthorne and Sunbury Leisure Centres and at various other locations in the Borough.

Pick up your free guide from the Council offices, health centres, leisure centres, libraries and community centres. You can also download it from the Spelthorne Council’s website.

For more information and full details for the week, please visit www.spelthorne.gov.uk/living- well or call 01784 451499.
