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 2024 are now payable.

LOSRA Life Membership Now Available

LOSRA Life MembershipAt the AGM on 22nd June the Constitution was amended to allow residents to sign up for life membership to LOSRA. The change to the Constitution was brought about following requests from residents who, rather than having to remember to renew each year, preferred a one off facility. The amendment to the Constitution was duly put before the AGM and passed.

The life membership may be paid in the same way as annual membership; ie. by completing the tear-off slip at the back of the newsletter and depositing a cheque at Twirltours in Green Street, or at the Post Office in The Avenue. We have also included the facility to pay via PayPal on the Home Page of this Site.

St Mary's ChurchLOSRA is very pleased to post this invitation on behalf of St. Mary's: St Mary's Church will be holding a Community Event which will take the form of an Afternoon Tea Party in the Church, on Saturday 16 July between 3.00pm and 5.00pm.

Home made scones, clotted cream and music on the grand piano will all make for a very pleasant afternoon.

Please come and join us as we would love the Sunbury community to be with us.

Picnic in the Park, Saturday 9th July

Panama Cafe OrchestraThe Friends of Sunbury Embroidery are once again organising an evening concert in the Walled Garden. This year the Panama Cafe Orchestra will be playing with "nostalgia, wit and authentic sounds of the 20s & 30s" (www.panamacafe.co.uk).

Bring you own chairs, tables and picnics... and although it will be summer it will be impossible to tell, so bring something warm to wear just in case.

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.

Eco ParkDespite the combined efforts of SATEP, CVRA and LOSRA, the Planning and Regulatory Committee of Surrey County Council approved the development of the 'Eco Park' proposal on 30th June. To do otherwise would have meant SCC having to repay substantial PFI loans and this was a consideration which would outweigh all others no matter how persuasive the opposing arguments proved to be.

A refusal of the application would also have risked reputational damage to SCC. The possibility of financial loss and reputational damage has been recorded in an official SCC 'Risk Assessment' document (now in LOSRA'S possession) compiled at the request of the Leader of the Council; and which was presumably not intended for wide circulation. It is inconveivable that members of the Planning Committee were not aware of this document and its content before deciding to approve their own application.

The joint campaign group will now be lobbying the Secretary of State to 'call in' the application and will be seeking a top QC's legal opinion before considering our next steps.

Sing Spelthorne Community Choir

Sing SpelthorneYou may have seen the recent television programme about the new phenomenon of community rock choirs? Would you be interested in joining a similar choir? Then the Sing Spelthorne community choir may be for you and new members are always welcome.

The free weekly sessions take place at Brooklands College in Ashford on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm. If it takes your fancy why not come along and give it a try. It's open to all ages (children must be supervised) and abilities so complete beginners are more than welcome and you won’t have to audition or sing on your own - the aim is just to have a good time.

The choir sings a huge variety of songs ranging from rock to pop, gospel to blues, folk to classical.

Caroline Barnes has published her report for the month of May. Were you aware that the new skate park in Green Street attracts youngsters from as far away as Central London?
