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.

Crime on The River, Notice to Boat Owners

Crime on the riverSurrey Police have just issued the following crime alert to boat owners on the River:

Overnight on the 11th/12th April 2011 a number of thefts where property was stolen, and attempted thefts, from motor boats took place on the River in the Shepperton area. It is believed that a boat was used to approach other moored vessels and the stolen property was taken away and probably landed elsewhere.

If you have a boat moored on the river please could you secure it as much is possible and should anyone see any suspicious activity either on the river or the riverbank or have any information which may assist please do not hesitate to call Surrey Police on 0845 125 2222 or 999 in case of emergency.

Sunbury Sports Association is expanding its activities with a new season of music and entertainment events in the clubhouse of what most you will know best as Sunbury Cricket Club in Lower Hampton Road. Here are details of the first two events. These are open to all, not just members of the Club, and we would look forward to seeing you there.

Thursday 21st April - THE 60s ALL STARS

They are Alan Lovell (Swinging Blue Jeans), Mick Avory (The Kinks), John Dee (The Foundations), Del Mandel (Crispian St. Peters/George Harrison). 8.00 p.m. onwards. Admission £4.00 on the door. www.60s-Allstars.co.uk. Promoted in association with Stayin' Alive Rock Events (www.stayin-alive.org.uk)

London IrishResidents who have received our Spring newsletter, or viewed it on line, will by now know that the Public Inquiry to determine the appeals by London Irish will be held on 7th June at the Council Chamber. In preparation for this hearing, LOSRA is required to submit its 'Statement of Case'. This document represents a preliminary step towards the next phase, the submission of proofs of evidence and all supporting documents by the beginning of next month.

The purpose of this article is twofold: to remind you of the important public meeting to be held on Thursday 12th May at St.Mary's Village Hall at 8.30pm; and to ask you to view the statement of case by clicking here.

Thames21Thanks to the support of local resident volunteers, a great deal was achieved in the clean-up of Sunbury Lock island on 12th March (See article dated 4th March). Over 20 bags of (some unmentionable) rubbish, discarded traffic cones, and other detritus were removed from this beautiful nature reserve.

More work still needs to be done however and a second clean-up operation is planned for Thursday 21st April. If you are available, and can spare the time, do please join Thames 21 for what will prove to be an enjoyable and very worthwhile few hours.
