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.

Avian Flu Precautions

There have been a number of incidents of dead swans and the Council is working with the relevant authorities to ensure these are humanely removed from the area.

As a precaution it is recommended that people keep dogs on leads on the river towpaths and stay on the paths. People should also not touch or try to rescue sick birds.

Warm Hubs Launched Across Surrey

A network of Warm Hubs has been set up across Surrey to provide support to residents in these challenging times. The Warm Hubs are community spaces across the county where people can drop in, get warm, have a hot drink and be in the company of other people. There will also be people on hand to give free energy advice. It's open to all.

Surrey County Council, district, borough; and town and parish councils have been working togehter with Surrey's faith and community groups to open up this network of Warm Hubs established to support residents who will be affected by the cost-of-living and energy crisis.

Particular congratulations must go to the Sunbury Ferry which stood out by winning the Sustainable Business of the Year, the Corporate Social Responsibility Award and scooping up, as overall winner, the Best Business in Spelthorne.

As an Association, and having given practical support to the Ferry since its inception, we are especially pleased with the Borough-wide recognition given to this enterprise which has brought so much pleasure to communities on both sides of the River.

Great credit must also go to the Sassy Apron bakery in Thames Street for winning the New Start up of the Year.

Celebrated British jazz pianist Jason Rebello was labelled a veteran by critics at 19 and over the next decade won most of the major jazz music awards.

 “At 21, he’s probably the most gifted and fluent pianist to emerge in Britain since Django Bates”
Neville Hadsley, Jazz FM 1990

Classically trained but inspired by Herbie Hancock, he came to the attention of one of the founders of jazz fusion, Weather Report’s saxophonist Wayne Shorter. Impressed by his musical fluency and style, Shorter produced his No 1 debut album A Clearer View October 1990 Novus PD 90527.

 “…..A Clearer View describes graceful crossover holding patterns, seeking not to challenge but to entertain. Rebello has created a series of compositions where he knows his musicians will be comfortable and can easily express themselves. It’s their shared values of craftsmanship that make this album work”
WIRE magazine 1990

 By 1992 Jason’s musical talent and endearing personality enabled him to feature in a wide range of media projects including Artrageous BBC 2 which Janet Street-Porter invited him to present. Popular and confident, Jason chose to produce his second album Keeping Time. He invited a wealth of his musical friends to feature including soul diva Jocelyn Brown and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
