The 2011 Census figures tell us that, within Spelthorne, all population groups have increased; the only exception being the vital 25 – 49 demographic which shows a ½ % reduction. For any community to survive and thrive it’s essential that there is more provision for families and the homes to accommodate them. We start 2013 with a number of significant developments in which ample provision is being made and it can only be hoped that by the next census in 2021, we will witness an increase in this very important age group. Please sign up to receive our regular e-bulletins by leaving your details via the Contact LOSRA Menu. Also, 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 2013 are now payable and may be made via the Paypal facility.
The AGM Newsletter will be distributed in the next few days to all Lower Sunbury households. To view the Newsletter on line, click here
Arts Week at Chennestone Primary School and Beauclerc Nursery and Infant School will be celebrating the Week with an Exhibition at the Walled Garden.
The theme for this year’s Event is ‘Sculptures’. Each class/year group will be involved in designing and making creative sculptures, which will go on display and be used in or around the school. Each of the sculptures will be linked to the school’s themes of Sustainability. The children will have considered using recycled materials, re-using materials for different purposes and the purpose or message of their chosen sculpture.
On Friday 7th June the sculptures will be displayed in the Walled Gardens. The Schools are hoping that the children, parents and members of the local community will come and enjoy their exhibition throughout the day and over the weekend of the 8th and 9th June. Indeed, all are welcome to come and support this imaginative project.
The following email from our local police has been received by LOSRA and we are very pleased to reproduce it here:
"I am writing to you to inform you of a group of so called 'roofers' which are operating in the area.
The company is called BEACON ROOFING and they use a WHITE TOYOTA HIACE.
On Wednesday 15/05/2013 a elderly couple in Lower Sunbury agreed that these men would jet clean their drive for the price of £300 only to find that not only had they done a very poor job and left rubbish all over the drive but they told the couple as they had put "a special solution down" on their drive they now required £1,700. The couple explained that they did not have that sort of money to which one of the builders replied ask your neighbours for it.
The men told the couple that they would return yesterday to collect the money which they did return. The couple called police and upon police arrival the builders were told that as they had not offered a cooling down period of 7 days and no receipts could be produced the couple were not obliged to pay anything.
Trading Standards are now investigating this company
In this case the couple were not conned out of 1000's of pounds but these men will try it again so if you see this company operating in your area please let us know and warn your neighbours and friends not to use this company."

It has been reported to LOSRA by one of our members that a number of thefts have been committed at Virgin Active Leisure Centre in The Avenue. The offences have been effected by cutting into the lockers and stealing valuables, (phones, cash etc).
The Chairman has phoned the police to obtain details of incidents, times, dates, and property stolen but was advised that the Data Protection Act precludes the police from disclosing such information.
Two phone calls and an email to the Leisure Centre have not been returned by the management.
Rather than waiting for further confirmation we believe it important to alert residents to the possible risks of taking valuable property into the premises.
Citizens' Advice and the Trading Standards Institute have teamed up with a campaign to highlight the problem of scams, tell people how to avoid being taken in and how they can fight back against the scammers. To view, click here
