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 2019 are now payable.

Appeal for Newsletter distributors!

Since our Association was formed in 1972 the distribution of our newsletters has been a central feature of our communications strategy and is particularly welcomed by residents who prefer to read hard copy or who are unable to access our online editions.

We are immensely grateful to all those distributors who give their time to this important part of our work.  From time to time however, whether due to house moves, retirement or ill health, it becomes necessary to recruit additional volunteer distributors and we are at that point now.

We are currently trying to recruit specifically for The Avenue to Manor Lane and for reserves to stand in for absences (eg. Due to holidays etc). Rounds, of which there are three a year, typically take about an hour.

If you are in a position to help please give our Secretary, Colleen Cuthbert, a call on 01932 783606 or by email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Residents will wish to congratulate former Sunbury CC Colt and 1st XI player Stuart Poynter who is currently playing in the inaugural Test match between Ireland and Afghanistan in Dehradun in the Himalayan foothils of Utterakhand in northern India.

Stuey, a wicketkeeper/batsman (pictured), is no stranger to representative cricket having played for Ireland and Middlesex age groups and for Ireland in One Day Internationals and in the T/20 format. He also played for Middlesex before gaining a more secure place with Durham. 

He already enjoys a footnote in history when he won a recent T20 match for Ireland against Netherlands when he hit a six off the last ball of the match with 9 wickets down providing a winning margin of just one run.  To do that for your country is every schoolboy's dream - and not just a few misty eyed old fogeys as well, no doubt.  

 Stuey is the third Sunbury Colt to play Test cricket, following in the footsteps of England's Richard Johnson and Toby Roland-Jones. We wish him well - and hope to see him playing in the Test match between England and Ireland at Lords in July.

Further to the article posted here (scroll down to 4th March) regarding the proposal to develop the garden at the rear of 79 Thames Street, the Association has now submitted a letter of objection, which may be viewed by clicking here

 

 

 

“What makes our area such a happy place to live? Come and talk to our many local charities and discover what they do. Refreshments available, entrance free.”

The event will be held on Saturday 16th March between 10am – 1pm at Shepperton Village Hall, High Street, Shepperton TW17 9AU.
