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.

This Association has received a number of emails from residents concerned with the recent upsurge in disorderly behaviour and criminal damage by youths on scooters and mopeds congregating in car parks and other public spaces within Lower Sunbury. Indeed, this phenomenon has also been reported in the most recent issue of Sunbury Matters: click to see.

Our local police who have been made aware of this problem and also the spike in residential burglaries are doing their best within their very limited resources. Indeed, The Police and Crime Commissioner, David Munro, has written to all MPs and Council Leaders in Surrey to seek their support in abolishing the current cap on the policing element of the council tax. In his letter, Mr Munro says “Like many forces up and down the country, Surrey Police are currently running at the limit of their capabilities at a time when demand on the service continues to grow.”

If you have concerns about your neighbourhood and would like to have your say, why not come to the Spelthorne Police and Partnership Meeting on 29th November at the Staines Community Centre.

Manor Players are staging this hilarious comedy by Graham Linehan, based on the 1955 film of the same name. The play enjoyed a successful run in London some years ago and it is now on its way to brighten up those dark, grey November nights in Sunbury-on-Thames. If you like the sound of the synopsis below, why not join us for a read-through on Thursday 24th August?

‘The Ladykillers’ tells the story of the sweet, innocent Mrs Wilberforce, who lives alone with her parrot in a strange, lopsided house in London.

Her daily routine is shaken by the arrival of Professor Marcus and his four friends, who make up the most unlikely group of criminals.The gang disguise themselves as a string quartet rehearsing in Mrs Wilberforce’s spare room, while they plan the theft of a security van at Kings Cross Station.

Mrs Wilberforce suddenly finds herself pitted against a gang of criminal misfits, who decide to involve her in the plot. Surely a little old lady has nothing against five cunning men…

Venue: The Riverside Arts Centre, Thames Street, Sunbury. For further details and bookings go to manorplayers.org
