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.

Johnny Mercer is best known as a Tin Pan Alley lyricist, but he also composed music. He was a popular singer who recorded his own songs as well as songs written by others.

From the mid-1930s through the mid-1950s, many of the songs Mercer wrote and performed were among the most popular hits of the time. He wrote the lyrics to more than 1,500 songs, including compositions for movies and Broadway shows.

He received nineteen Academy Award nominations, and won four Best Original Song Oscars.

His songs will be celebrated by the Terence Collie quartet with Jane Parker (vocals) at the Riverside Arts Centre, 59, Thames Street on Sunday 14th July.

Many thanks to all of you who came to the Club’s inaugural Music Night with the Marshall Taylor Band and Blues Unlimited – it was very well attended and the collection for Shooting Star Children’s Hospice raised nearly £500, so it was a very worthwhile and fun event.

The next Music Night at the Club is on Friday 21st June when we welcome back THE 60s ALL STARS for what has become a regular summer party night. The band played at our very first Music Night eight years ago and have always been one of our most popular attractions, so we are always delighted to have them back.

The band comprises Mick Avory, the original and long-time drummer with the Kinks, Alan Lovell from the Swinging Blue Jeans and John Dee of The Foundations, and often with the added bonus of Hollies keyboard player Ian Parker, they are one of the best revival bands around.  We know that a hugely entertaining evening of wall-to-wall Sixties and rock ‘n’ roll classics is absolutely guaranteed. Pass the word around and bring your friends – it’s always a fun night and it will be a great way to celebrate the summer solstice, for the Druids amongst you.

We look forward to seeing you there. Food will be available as usual from about 7.

To raise money for the Amateur Club (LIARFC) the Club will be hosting its second beer festival following last year’s success.

This year they will be aiming a little bit bigger with more external food and drink stalls to offer a wide range of street food and snacks; and alternatives to real ale. Live music will be provided throughout by four excellent bands.

More information, and ticket details, can be found on their website: www.eventsatliarfc.co.uk/
