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.

The next Music Night at Sunbury CC is on Friday 10th February, when the Club welcomes THE ROBIN BIBI BAND for the first time, although Robin has played here several times with other bands, most notably The ‘60s All Stars.

Robin is one of the UK’s most respected blues/rock performers, and something of a legend on the club and festival circuit, as a guitarist/singer/songwriter who has played with the likes of The Pretty Things, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and Ben E. King, and has shared the bill with B.B. King, Van Morrison and Chuck Berry. He has released a dozen critically acclaimed albums since 1997, and plays with his band all over Europe, as well as also performing as a member of The ‘60s All Stars and The Eel Pie All Stars.

He is joined for this gig by Tony Marten, formerly with George Michael, on bass, and drummer Wez Johnson, a colleague of contemporary US blues rockers Kirk Fletcher and Ariel Posen. We can guarantee that it will be a top class night of blues/rock in the classic tradition of Sunbury Music Nights.

There’s more information at https://robinbibiband.co.uk/, including links to some great videos on YouTube.

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.

Corporate Peer Challenge

At the end of November, Spelthorne Borough Council invited a team of senior officers and councillors to undertake a comprehensive Local Government Association Corporate Peer Challenge. The team conducted more than 40 meetings involving over 125 people, including a range of Council employees and councillors as well as external stakeholders and partners.

Whilst containing some positive elements it will make uncomfortable reading for some.

Alban Claret was born in Perpignan (France) in 1987. He took his first guitar lessons at eight years old and discovered his passion and dedication for music making as a teenager which later made him study intensively.

In 2004, he was accepted as a student of the Musicology Faculty at the Conservatoire of Montpellier to broaden his knowledge about music styles. He also studied at the Jazz department of the Conservatoire of Perpignan with the brilliant French Jazz Guitarist Serge Lazarevitch. During this period Alban composed his first music and led several bands and played his first concerts.

Upon his arrival in the Netherlands in 2008, he was accepted in the Jazz department at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague and cooperated with musicians like John Ruocco and Eric Ineke also studying with Martijn van Iterson.

In 2017, Alban decided to move to London and settle as a full time musician and since performed in numerous Jazz clubs in London and the UK.
