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 2017 are now payable.

Spelthorne Borough Council will be holding its second annual Living Well Week from Monday 25 September – Sunday 1 October. Designed for the over 50s, this seven-day event promotes some of the activities and services aimed at helping older people improve their health.

Leading a healthier lifestyle doesn't necessarily mean going to the gym - it could be joining a walking group or taking up yoga, line dancing, or cycling. There really is something for everyone.

As part of the event, Spelthorne’s Community Centres are offering the chance for all new visitors to try an activity for free and giving away goody bags from 25-29 September. You can also try one free session from the Get Active 50+ programme with activities such as badminton, walking football, touch tennis and jogging. Further activities are also taking place at the Spelthorne and Sunbury Leisure Centres and at various other locations in the Borough.

Pick up your free guide from the Council offices, health centres, leisure centres, libraries and community centres. You can also download it from the Spelthorne Council’s website.

For more information and full details for the week, please visit www.spelthorne.gov.uk/living- well or call 01784 451499.

As you may know, Tesco, through their Bags Of Help community grant scheme, are making money raised by their 5p charge for them supplying customers with plastic bags available to support local community projects, and customers have the opportunity to vote for projects which have been proposed.

The Friends of Sunbury Park have successfully made an application to be one of the projects which are currently being voted on at the Sunbury Tesco store. The application is for funds to enhance Sunbury Park through planting of native wild flowers and herbs to encourage biodiversity and improve the habitat for all kinds of wildlife.

When you shop they you will be offered a blue disc which you can put in a voting tube. There are three projects to vote for of which the FoSP is one – the most popular will get £4,000, the next one £2,000 and the third one gest £1,000.

 Please help us to support the enhancement of Sunbury Park by voting for the FoSP  application.

Sunbury Cricket Club’s 1st X1 crowned another excellent season last weekend when, on Saturday, they beat Ashtead in the final League game of the season to secure second place in the Premier Division of the Surrey Championship, having won the title in the previous two years, and then on Sunday scored a famous victory when they beat Middlesex champions Ealing to win the Club Cricket Conference Cup Final.

On a small ground at Chingford, Sunbury batted first and, taking advantage of the short boundaries, ran up a total of 292 all out in their allotted 45 overs, with skipper John Maunders, a former county player with Leicestershire and Essex, scoring 125. So prolific were the six hits that six balls were lost in surrounding gardens.

Ealing, who came with a lofty reputation, were never in the hunt, with accurate bowling and brilliant fielding from Sunbury reducing them to 27-3 after ten overs, and they were eventually all out for 192, with Sunbury winning by 100 runs.

It was a long-awaited revenge for Sunbury’s defeat to Ealing the last time they appeared in this competition’s final a number of years ago.

The Club Cricket Conference Cup, which used to be the Evening Standard Cup, was merged this year with the Bertie Joel Cup, a mid-week knock-out competition for clubs in the London and the south-east, and, now known as The Conference Cup for The Bertie Joel Trophy, is the primary Cup Competition for clubs in London and the Home Counties.

The next music event at the Club is, of course, the inaugural SUNBURY BEER, WINE & MUSIC FESTIVAL on Saturday 16th September, which promises to be a great occasion, and which the Club hopes will become an annual fixture in the Sunbury social calendar, possibly in an expanded weekend form if it’s a success.

The Club will be presenting three bands during the day, all of them proven and popular Music Night favourites:

2pm SKELETON CREW Jug band blues, featuring Paul King from Mungo Jerry on guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica and squeezebox, Colin Pattenden from Manfred Mann’s Earth Band on bass, with Chris Bryant on guitar.

5.30pm THE MUSTANGS  High octane contemporary blues/rock from a band who played at Glastonbury this year, with Adam Norsworthy on vocals & guitar, Derek Kingaby on harmonica, Ben McKeown on bass and Jon Bartley on drums, who shares his musician life with his duties as co-leader of the Green Party. “The band no self-respecting blues festival can afford to be without” (R2 magazine)

9pm FIRE & WATER The great rock and blues singer Paul Cox returns with his rip-roaring show comprising the songs of Free, Bad Company and Led Zeppelin to close the evening, featuring among the band guitarist  Mike Summerland, who has worked over the years with Blodwyn Pig, Georgie Fame, William Bell and many others.

 Tickets are £10 for the entire event, which goes from noon until midnight, and entitle you to a wristband, which gets you in and out of the event, a free souvenir pint glass and access to all the music, so it’s great value. There will be a wide selection of real ales, craft lagers and ciders, a gin bar and prosecco and wine bar, plus BBQ food and curries from 2pm.

Tickets are available in advance from the Club bar or online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/sunburysports. It makes sense to get them in advance as numbers may need to be capped during the day for safety reasons, and the club has already sold nearly 200 tickets. It’s an event that’s tailor-made for Music Night regulars, and the Club looks forward to seeing you all there.
