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 2022 are now payable.

LOSRA Newsletter Error

Under "Other important dates and details" shown in our Spring newsletter (below) you may have noticed "Sunbury Embroidery is kick-starting its fund-raising for the Gallery Redevelopment project once more and has a fund-raising Garden Party at Monksbridge on Sunday 4th June - more details to follow"
 
The eagle-eyed may have noticed that the 4th of June falls on a Saturday and, to avoid confusion, it is this day & date which applies to the Embroidery fund-raiser.
 
Apologies for the confusion.

The Council has published the following notice:

The Government has announced measures to help protect millions of households from rising energy costs including a £150 council tax energy rebate to all households in England whose primary residence is valued in Council Tax bands A - D.

The government has also stated that they will provide additional funding for billing authorities to operate a discretionary fund for households in need who would not otherwise be eligible.

The next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 18th March when the Club stages  its now traditional special event in support of the Mayor of Spelthorne’s Charities. These events have proved extremely successful and enjoyable evenings, so, having missed last year, we are delighted to be able to put one on this year, especially since this year’s Mayor of Spelthorne is Cllr. Ian Harvey, one of our local Sunbury East councillors, who is a great supporter of the Club.

The Club has assembled the usual suspects from the great and good of Sunbury’s music fraternity to play under the name of THE CHAIN GANG in honour of the Mayor’s chain of office. The Mayor’s charities are East To West, providing support to young people in Surrey and Berkshire struggling with difficult and damaging issues, and Ashford Youth & Community Centre, whose aim is to protect the current youth service and work with local community groups to improve services for young people and the community at the Centre.

The band features our resident beat era superstar Karl Green, original and long-time bass player with Herman’s Hermits, plus Chris Allard (guitar, keyboards, harmonica) , Gerry Cook (guitar) and Martin House (bass) from the band Matrix, Mark Doyle (guitar) and Phil Miller-Tate (bass) from the Marshall Taylor Band, Tim Renton (guitar) from 3AM, Roger Harding (bass) from Rebel Yell Jazz Orchestra, Stephane Booroff (drums), formerly with Edison Lighthouse and now with Sky High and The Escorts, and Alan Worrell (drums) from The Next Big Thing. Fronting things is Music Night host Paul Watts.

The musicians will be giving their services free, so all the door money will go to the charities. It will be a great night of rock ‘n’ roll, blues, ‘60s R&B, rock and country. It’s all for a great cause and will be a fun community night, so please put it in your diary.

Admission is £10.00 on the door, payable by cash or card. Please note that, with some Mayoral guests travelling from far-flung corners of Surrey, the band will go on stage around 8.30 p.m.

Hot food, prepared by the expert chefs from our resident caterers from the community food redistribution organisation Surplus To Supper, will be available from 7pm, and the band will be on stage about 9.00pm.
