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 2018 are now payable.

The Friends of St Mary's are opening the Church for  a 'Heritage Open Day' on the 15th September (10-4pm.). 

It follows much the same format as in previous years. The day will include a display of archival material by the Sunbury & Shepperton Local History Society; records & photos from the Church archives, including  added details about the names on the WW1 & WW2 memorial boards and other memorials; self - guided tours of the inside memorials and the now rather indistinct Churchyard gravestones, with added information.

There will be tours of the bell tower and a chance to have a go on the bells plus tea/coffee and/or ice cream!  

This will be your chance to browse at leisure and to look at the recently restored artwork in the Apse and Chancel, ask questions (good for those doing their family histories) and tell your stories.

Tickets for the Hamilton Loomis Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club on Friday 7th September are now available to be bought on line, here

Hamilton was a protégé of the legendary blues artist Bo Diddley and appeared on stage with him as well as performing on his albums. He is a sensational performer, and his ‘live’ show is something to behold.

Guitar Player magazine wrote if him: “If blues, soul, and rock can be said to form a triangle, you’ll find Hamilton Loomis right in the centre of it.”, and he is one of the young artists at the forefront of bringing blues-based American music into the 21st century and redefining it for a contemporary audience.

His album “Ain’t Just Temporary” reached No. 7 in Billboard’s Blues Chart. His band features Armando Aussenac (drums, background vocals) and Fabian Hernandez (saxes, keyboards, background vocals).  It will be a stunning evening.

There’s full information about him at www.hamiltonloomis.com and loads of ‘live’ videos on www.youtube.com

After the success of last year’s Beer and Music festival Sunbury Cricket Club will be hosting a similar event in 2018.

As the new title implies, however, there will be a greater emphasis on gin this time but without detriment to lovers of ales, lagers, wines and ciders.

Tickets to the public start on Saturday 4th August and may be purchased over the bar or online here

The next Sunbury Music Night is on Friday 17th Aug., when the Club presents “Move It” – A Tribute to the Music of Cliff Richard & The Shadows. Believe it or not, it's 60 years this month since Cliff Richard released his first single and first hit "Move It", so to mark the occasion Sunbury Music Club's regular house band is doing a fund-raising and charity night performing a show comprising the music of Cliff Richard & The Shadows, including a number of the instrumental hits The Shadows had in their own right.

Cliff is still one of the great British rock 'n' rollers, and he has made many fine records over the years, as indeed did The Shadows, and they inspired thousands of youngsters to start playing rock 'n' roll themselves.

The band comprises core members of The Chain Gang, who perform at our Mayor's Charity nights, and features Paul Watts (vocals/rhythm guitar), Gerry Cook (lead guitar/vocals), Martin House (bass guitar/vocals), Kevin Welling (keyboards, guitar, vocals), Alan Worrell (drums).

The proceeds of the evening will be split between a contribution towards installing permanent stage lights at the club, and a donation to The Sir Cliff Richard Charitable Trust, which we thought would be an appropriate gesture.

We are aiming for this to be a real summer party night, so alert any Cliff fans that you know, put a party of friends together and make sure you get along for a fun evening - there will be plenty of songs that you all know the words to!

Venue: Sunbury Cricket Club, Lower Hampton Road, Sunbury TW16 5PS

Doors: 8.30pm

Entrance £10

Food will be available as usual.
