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.

Spelthorne Borough Council is launching a consultation to establish whether residents support the introduction of a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) prohibiting street drinking associated with anti-social behaviour within the Borough.

Types of anti-social behaviour in relation to street drinking include:

  • groups causing intimidation and annoyance to members of the public and businesses.
  • drinking alcohol in public places, including high streets, outside train stations, parks and open spaces and by the River Thames
  • urinating/defecating in public open spaces.
  • anti-social behaviour within public car parks.

The public consultation closes on 21st October

Judith O'Higgins, a forensic pathologist who also plays tenor sax joins her other half Dave who has to content himself with merely being one of Britain’s top jazz saxophonists. Here, they engage in a traditional “tenor battle”, in which two well-matched tenor saxes take it in turns to show what they’re made of.

The concert will be followed by 2 Jazz Jam sessions on 4th October and 8th November.

The next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 16th September when the Club is delighted to welcome back BAD INFLUENCE. This was meant to be the weekend of the Beer Festival, but unfortunately that’s not happening, so they're putting on the band that was going to top the bill at the Festival on the Friday night instead.

BAD INFLUENCE are one of the Club's most popular bands, and have done some storming shows at the Club, including headlining a previous beer festival.

They feature Val Cowell on guitar and vocals, Richard Hayes on guitar, Pete Stroud on bass, and Johnny Brister on drums, performing their distinctive brand of hard-hitting up-front blues/rock, blending original material from their albums with interpretations of material from the likes of Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitt and Fleetwood Mac. It will be a fine evening of archetypal Sunbury Music Night fare, and a great night with all the Beer Festival atmosphere. More info at www.badinfluence.org.uk.

It's £10.00 on the door payable by cash or cards. Hot food will be available as usual from about 7pm. It should be a good night!

Matt Ridley is a freelance double bassist, bass guitarist, educator and composer bandleader based in London.

He has a performing career spanning more than 2 decades.

He makes his debut at the Riverside Arts Centre with the Terence Collie trio on Sunday 4th September.

The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.

The historic Walled Garden in Sunbury Park was built in the early part of the 18th Century. Following years of neglect, Spelthorne Council embarked on a restoration project of the two-acre garden in 1985. Now home to dozens of varieties of clematis, this 'hidden gem' provides a tranquil spot all year round.
