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 2018 are now payable.

Drones - Have You Been Buzzed?

Rate this item
(2 votes)

A local resident has recently been buzzed by a drone in her back garden and, with the advent of fine weather, it is not unreasonable to suppose that the recreational flying of drones may increase during the summer months.

As was evident from the resident’s experience, not all drone users act responsibly either deliberately or through ignorance of the UK Drone code published by the Civil Aviation Authority.

Simply put, the Code states:

Don’t fly near airports or airfields

Remember to stay below 400ft (120m)

Observe your drone at all times – stay 150 ft (50m) away from people and property

Never fly near aircraft

Enjoy responsibly

For further information visit dronesafe.uk and if you have any concerns about drones being used in your area, either from a safety or privacy perspective, contact your local police on 101. The Council is not the enforcement agency.

This advance warning will be of interest to all residents living in roads close to the London Irish Hazelwood grounds off Green Street.

The 2018 London Irish Mini Festival, one of the biggest in Europe, will fall on 29th April. Despite the best efforts of organisers to prevent inconvenience to local residents, there is little they can do about visiting parents and supporters who choose to disregard the travel and parking arrangements provided by London Irish Amateur RFC. Blocked streets and driveways are a real likelihood.

The busiest time for traffic will be 8am to 10.30am, peaking between 9 - 10am as teams arrive for a 10.am start.  The event has a staggered finish from approximately 2pm (age group dependent), with the last games finishing about 4pm.

The next Music Night at the Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 13th April, when the Clubs welcomes back THE NASHVILLE TEENS. They couldn’t do their usual New Year spot this year, so we’re very happy to have for an Easter show this time. They are one of the great names from the ‘60s when they had two memorable Top Ten hits in 1964 with “Tobacco Road” and “Google Eye”. They have played storming gigs to kick off the last three years, so we can expect another rousing evening this time around.

The line-up features their original lead singer Ray Phillips, who has had an unbroken half-century career with the band, as well as making solo records and performing with other line-ups like the British Invasion All-Stars with members of The Yardbirds, Creation and Downliners Sect. With him in the current Nashville Teens is a line-up of seasoned performers, including Colin Pattenden, member of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band when they had their big hits back in the 70s, on bass, with Simon Spratley of The Ian Campbell Blues Band on keyboards, Ken Osborn from Levee Camp Moan on guitar, Adam Russel on harmonica and Adrian ‘Spud’ Metcalf on drums.

It will be another night of classic ‘60s R&B, featuring in Ray one of the great voices of the beat era. It’s also a special occasion as their double CD & DVD “Live At The Nag’s Head 1983” is released on 23rd March and will be on sale. There’s more information at www.Nashville-Teens.com.

Food will be available as usual. For flier, click here

O'Day, along with Mel Tormé  is often grouped with the West Coast school of jazz. Like Tormé, O'Day had some training in jazz drums (courtesy of her first husband Don Carter); her longest musical collaboration was with jazz drummer John Poole. While maintaining a central core of hard swing O'Day's skills in improvisation of rhythm and melody ranks among the pioneers of bebop.

On Sunday 15th April, Jo Harrop will be paying tribute to O’Day’s Verve years. With Jo’s music described as retro soul and a voice that’s been variously likened to dark velvet and honeyed chocolate all matched to a sunny, upbeat personality, she will make it an evening not to be missed.

Jo will be supported by Steve Rubie – sax & flute; Terence Collie – piano; Miles Danso – bass; Sophie Alloway – drums.

Venue: Riverside Arts Centre, 59 Thames Street, Sunbury, TW16 6RB

Doors 7.30pm

Entrance £12 on the door or £9 via website: www.moodindigoevents.co.uk

Police and Crime Plan Survey

Rate this item
(1 Vote)

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey David Munro is asking for the public’s views on his proposal to refresh his Police and Crime Plan for the county.

By law, the PCC has to produce a Policing and Crime Plan which sets the strategic direction for the Force and provides the basis for how he holds the Chief Constable to account.

The PCC has decided that half way through his current four year term of office he wants to further develop his original plan and is seeking the public’s views on a new draft through a short survey that can be found here: Police and Crime Plan Survey

The plan features six revised priorities as below and the draft can be viewed here: Draft Plan

Tackling Crime and Keeping Surrey Safe

Building Confident Communities

Supporting Victims

Preventing Harm

Making Every Pound Count

A Force Fit for the Future

PCC David Munro said: “It is approaching two years since I took office and I believe now is a good time to revisit my Police and Crime Plan and refresh the six priorities within it.

“When I launched my original plan in the summer of 2016, I stated I wanted to help deliver a policing service the public can be proud of. Since then some real progress has been achieved.

“Under a stable Chief Officer team, a new policing model has been successfully embedded in Surrey allowing the police to balance demands from serious and complex crimes with the need to retain visible, local policing.

“At the same time Her Majesty’s Inspectorate for Police and Fire & Rescue Services has recognised improvements made by the Force with improved grades in recent inspections, particularly in protecting vulnerable people.

“We must never rest on our laurels however and over the next two years I want to see Surrey Police, my office and our partners build on this progress. The best plans are ones that evolve over time so I want to update my Police and Crime Plan to reflect the challenges I believe Surrey Police need to tackle in the coming months.

“We must continue to stay ahead of new crimes, crack down on emerging trends as they occur such as the current increase in burglary, support victims and keep all of Surrey’s communities safe.

“The public have a key role to play I would like as many people as possible to take a few minutes to fill in our survey, give us their views and help us continue to shape the future of policing in this county.”

The survey can be filled in here and will be open until April 9.
