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.

The next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 21st when the Club welcomes the great bluesman PAPA GEORGE, playing at the Club for the first time with his own band.

Singer and guitarist Papa George is one of the great British blues troubadours, who has been a fixture on the club and festival circuit since the 1970s, and is sufficiently renowned to have been inducted into the Blues Hall Of Fame in the USA. He will be appearing with bass player Pete Stroud, well-known at the club from his appearances with Bad Influence, and, extraordinarily, a drummer also called Pete Stroud, formerly with Sassafras, who has played at the Club with Paul Cox, and is also a member of The Foundations.

Muddy Waters’ guitarist Bob Margolin called George “A powerful deep blues player….a spectacular blues artist. He’s got power and nuance as a master entertainer”. Broadcaster Bob Harris says George plays “electric blues at its very best”. There’s more information at www.papageorge.co.uk.

George has appeared at the Club before with The Barnes Blues Band, but it’s a welcome and long overdue debut at the Club for him with his own band, and one not to be missed. This is the last Music Night before we have a break during the summer so we look forward to seeing you to make the most of this one.

Admission is £10.00 on the door, payable by cash or card. Hot food, prepared by the expert chefs from our resident caterers from the community food distribution organisation Surplus To Supper, will be available from 6pm. We look forward to seeing you there.

London Irish Mini Festival, April 23rd

The Amateur London Irish Mini Festival will once again be staged this year on Sunday, 23rd April. In previous years, inconsiderate parking by visiting parents has caused problems in nearby roads, often preventing residents from leaving or entering their driveways.

The Club has written to all competing clubs asking that they comply with the arrangements for parking which are as follows:

Car Parking

"No parking will be available at the London Irish Hazelwood ground. Kempton Park will provide all Festival parking. The designated entrance is the main entrance on Staines Road East. Marshals will be on hand to collect monies and direct you to overflow parking facilities if required. In addition they will direct you to buses which will transfer you to the Hazelwood ground which is a ten-minute bus ride from Kempton Park.

"Buses will carry shelters and kit.

"Out of consideration to residents in the immediate area please do NOT park in adjacent roads. A number of adjacent roads are too narrow to allow residents to park on, or leave, their houses because turning out of, or into, private drives becomes impossible if festival attendees park on the street.

"The police are likely to remove any cars that cause an obstruction for emergency vehicles or are blocking residents’ driveways".

A number of signs (illustrated) will be available on the day.

The next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 31st March, when we are delighted to welcome back DAVE KELLY, a leading figure on the UK and international blues scene for several decades, and one of the country’s finest slide guitarists, who has attracted sell-out audiences on previous visits to the Club, both solo and with his band.

He was with The John Dummer Blues Band in the ‘60s blues boom alongside his late lamented sister Jo-Ann Kelly, and toured the UK with John Lee Hooker and Howlin’ Wolf, before he and Jo Ann formed Tramp with Tony McPhee. In 1979 he founded The Blues Band with Paul Jones, Hughie Flint & Tom McGuinness, former members of Manfred Mann and McGuinness Flint, and for over 40 years until they called it a day in 2021, they were the UK’s top blues attraction. He is also a regular at festivals, club and concert dates across Europe and in the USA and Canada.

Dave won the British Blues Awards Top Acoustic Artist for five years running, until they stopped entering him! As a singer and guitarist steeped in the blues for a lifetime, his repertoire draws on classics from across the genre as well as his own material, and we can guarantee an evening of spell-binding and high-class entertainment from one of the greats of British blues.

Admission is £10.00 on the door, payable by cash or card. Hot food, prepared by the expert chefs from our resident caterers from the community food distribution organisation Surplus To Supper, will be available from 7pm.

Spelthorne Council announces the dates for the public hearings as part of its Local Plan examination, which will commence on 23 May 2023.

After 6 long years in gestation it is to be hoped that we now have the finishing line in sight.
