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 2024 are now payable.

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.
