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 2021 are now payable.

On Friday 10th January Sunbury Cricket Club kicks off the New Year in its customary style when they welcome back THE NASHVILLE TEENS in their now traditional New Year slot to start the year as they mean to go on.

They were one of the great names from the ‘60s who had two memorable Top Ten hits in 1964 with “Tobacco Road” and “Google Eye”, and have played storming gigs for the Club over the last six years, so we’re delighted to have them back again this year.

The line-up features their original lead singer Ray Phillips, who has had an unbroken half-century career with the band, as well as making solo records and performing with other line-ups like the British Invasion All-Stars with members of The Yardbirds, Creation and Downliners Sect.

With him in the current Nashville Teens is a line-up of seasoned performers, including Colin Pattenden, member of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band when they had their big hits back in the 70s, on bass, with Simon Spratley of The Ian Campbell Blues Band on keyboards, Ken Osborn from Levee Camp Moan on guitar, Adam Russel on harmonica and Adrian ‘Spud’ Metcalf on drums.

It will be another night of classic ‘60s R&B, featuring in Ray one of the great voices of the beat era. There’s more information at www.Nashville-Teens.com.

Food will be available as usual, so it’s hoped you can make it down to get this year’s Music Nights off to a cracking start. The Club looks forward to seeing you next week.

Simon Spillett is a multi-award winning English jazz tenor saxophonist.

He has won the BBC Jazz Awards Rising Star (2007), Jazz Journal's Critics' Choice album of the Year (2009), the British Jazz Awards Top Tenor Saxophonist (2011), the Services to British Jazz award (2016).

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all our members for their support throughout the year and we are immensely grateful to them.

At this time of year there are many estimable claims upon our wallets but if you value our efforts to represent the local community, for the price of two cups of coffee, you still have time to secure your membership of £5 for 2019.

Please don’t hesitate, do it now by using this link, which takes you to the Membership page of our website.

Many thanks in advance!

An email to LOSRA from the Council is reproduced here:

We appreciate that resident's may have noticed the high level of the River Thames over recent days. Despite the predicted rain over the next few days the Environment Agency have said they are not expecting the Thames to flood except low lying land - not properties.

However, we would like to reassure residents we are monitoring the situation and have contingency plans in place to deal with flooding should the need arise.

You can sign up for warnings direct and for the latest information on flood risks here

The following communication has been forwarded to LOSRA from Surrey Police:

On Wednesday 15 January 2020, we will be hosting a free ‘Policing Your Community’ event with the Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey at the Hythe Centre from 6:45pm.

This event will be your opportunity to hear from our Chief Officer Group on future plans and current challenges we face, and your Borough Commander on issues affecting your community. You will also have the opportunity to ask them questions you may have.

Police and Crime Commissioner David Munro will also be there to talk about his planned proposal for the 2020-21 Council Tax Precept and you will have the chance to take part in his public consultation.

The event is free to attend, but we recommend that you register your attendance which can be done on the link below.

Register to attend by going here

Coincidentally, the date advertised clashes with a police public event for Spelthorne at the Hazelwood Centre. Oh dear! See here
