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 2022 are now payable.

Amy's View is a play written by British playwright, David Hare. The play takes place in Berkshire near Pangbourne, and in London, from 1979 to 1995. Over the course of these sixteen years, "a running argument about the respective virtues of traditional theater and the media arts weaves its way through espoused opinions on marriage, love, fame, fidelity, betrayal, personal and artistic integrity, and the sometimes elusive ethics of the corporate world, among other things."

Supporting Ukraine

Surrey Fire and Rescue are working with a charity called Help from Bournemouth to Ukraine to collect food and supplies which will then be shipped out to where it's most needed in Poland and Ukraine.

They will be opening up Fordbridge fire station on Friday 25 March between 10:00 and 22:00 and Saturday 26 March between 09:00 and 22:00 for the collection of food (especially pasta, rice, powdered milk and canned meat/fish), clothing (no used underwear please!), bedding and blankets (again, no used duvets and pillows please), new non-prescription medicines (no old prescription drugs thanks), baby nappies, wipes, bottles and sterilizing fluid, hygiene essentials etc.

It would be hugely appreciated if you could share this amongst your friends and colleagues in the Borough and even better if you can spare a few hours to come and help.

The Spring newsletter (see below) carries an item on the application to install a 5G mast in Thames Street and the strength of our opposition. Since going to press we are very pleased to learn that the application has been refused by the planning officer.

LOSRA Newsletter Error

Under "Other important dates and details" shown in our Spring newsletter (below) you may have noticed "Sunbury Embroidery is kick-starting its fund-raising for the Gallery Redevelopment project once more and has a fund-raising Garden Party at Monksbridge on Sunday 4th June - more details to follow"
 
The eagle-eyed may have noticed that the 4th of June falls on a Saturday and, to avoid confusion, it is this day & date which applies to the Embroidery fund-raiser.
 
Apologies for the confusion.

The Council has published the following notice:

The Government has announced measures to help protect millions of households from rising energy costs including a £150 council tax energy rebate to all households in England whose primary residence is valued in Council Tax bands A - D.

The government has also stated that they will provide additional funding for billing authorities to operate a discretionary fund for households in need who would not otherwise be eligible.
