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.

London Irish Mini Rugby organiser has notified the Association that a number of busy weekends are coming up which will result in higher than usual on-street parking whilst the Club is experiencing difficulties with its overflow car park.

Surrey residents can now buy a range of reduced-price compost bins, hot composters, food waste digesters and other composting products courtesy of a subsidy provided by the Surrey Environment Partnership.

There are a range of compost bins available all with a third off the normal price. You can use them to compost all your garden waste, and even some food waste such as vegetable peelings, eggshells and coffee grounds. If you would like a product that can take all your food and garden waste, then you can buy the Green Johanna hot composter for just £74.99 (reduced from £129.99).

As well as making a saving yourself, you will be helping your local council save money. When residents compost their food and garden waste at home, money that would usually be spent running that service can be spent on other essential services across Surrey. Composting is also the most environmentally friendly method of disposing of your food and garden waste, helping you to do your bit for the planet.

To buy a discounted compost bin, visit the compost bin sale section of the SEP website now.

Happy New Year!

The first Music Night of the New Year at Sunbury CC is on Friday 6th January, when the Club welcomes back THE NASHVILLE TEENS in their traditional January slot to blow away the January blues – this gig is actually a week or two earlier than might have been chosen, but the band have dates booked in at holiday camps on subsequent weekends.

THE NASHVILLE TEENS are one of the great names from the ‘60s who had two memorable Top Ten hits in 1964 with “Tobacco Road” and “Google Eye”, and have played storming gigs for the Club over many years, so we’re delighted to have them back again. The line-up features their original lead singer Ray Phillips, who has had an unbroken half-century career with the band, as well as making solo records and performing with other line-ups like the British Invasion All-Stars with members of The Yardbirds, Creation and Downliners Sect. With him in the current Nashville Teens is a line-up of seasoned performers, including on bass Colin Pattenden, member of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band when they had their big hits back in the 70s with Simon Spratley of The Ian Campbell Blues Band on keyboards, Ken Osborn from Levee Camp Moan on guitar and Adrian ‘Spud’ Metcalf on drums. It will be another night of classic ‘60s R&B, featuring in Ray one of the great voices of the beat era. There’s more information at www.Nashville-Teens.com.

Food will be available as usual, so we hope you can make it down to get this year’s Music Nights off to a cracking start. In the meantime, the Club wishes you all the best for 2023  and will try to make sure there’s some fine entertainment at the Cricket Club during the year.

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 redistribution organisation Surplus To Supper, will be available from 7pm.

A prominent figure on the UK Jazz scene since 2000, Karen is well known and admired for her melodic, full-toned saxophone playing, winning the British Jazz Awards for best tenor saxophonist on numerous occasions and appearing as a nominee in the rising star category of the Downbeat Critics Poll for baritone sax in 2018 and 2019.

Karen joins the Terence Collie Trio at the Riverside Arts Centre, Thames Street on Sunday 8th January.
