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 2019 are now payable.

Sunday Lunchtime Jazz returns to Sunbury Cricket Club with a very special show featuring one of the most illustrious personalities on the British jazz scene, the cornetist, bandleader, broadcaster and author Digby Fairweather.

Digby has been playing jazz at the highest level for 40 years, and has been associated with many major names, as well as leading his own band The Half Dozen.

The late Sir John Dankworth called him “one of our most articulate jazzmen in both his words and his music”, and Jim Simpson, publisher of The Jazz Rag magazine wrote: “One of our great jazzmen, and the UK’s leading man-about jazz, he has assuredly taken the place vacated by Humphrey Lyttelton as Britain’s leading jazz personality”.

There is full information about him at www.digbyfairweather.com.  He is appearing with a quartet featuring an important up-and-coming name in British jazz, tenor saxophonist Duncan Eagles, along with Stephane Booroff (drums), Nick Cooper (piano) and Phil Berry (bass).

The show will start at around 1pm. Tickets at £10 are available on the door, and you can reserve them by e-mailing the address below. A lunch menu will be available from about 12.15, at £13.95 for 2 courses or £16.95 for three courses. It is a real privilege to have an artist of Digby’s stature playing in Sunbury, and it will be a great occasion.

 Sunbury Cricket Club, Lower Hampton Road, TW16 5PS.

Free trees for schools and communities

The Woodland Trust has announced the availability of free trees for planting:

“We want to make sure that everybody in the UK has the chance to plant a tree. So we’re giving away hundreds of thousands of trees to schools and communities.... Every sapling that we provide is UK sourced and grown to minimise the risk of importing and spreading tree pests and diseases. Seeds are collected and stored in the UK, and they are all coded and batched so that we can track an individual tree.”

The next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club falls on Friday 16th November when the Clube welcomes back PAUL COX with his special “WE REMEMBER JOE COCKER: UNCHAINED – THE BEST OF JOE COCKER ‘LIVE’” SHOW, marking the 50th anniversary of Joe being at No. 1 in the UK charts with his legendary version of The Beatles’ song  “With A Little Help From My Friends”, which reached the top of the charts on 6th November 1968.

Paul first performed this show at the club a couple of years ago, and has put the presentation together again this year for a commemorative round of gigs during the autumn. It was a stunning evening’s entertainment with a full house last time around, so we can expect another special occasion. Paul has appeared at the club many times with his bands and headlined last year’s Beer Festival with Fire & Water;  and he is one of the great showmen on the circuit – Radio 2’s Paul Jones cites him as one of his favourite singers, and says he is “one of the best voices in Europe”.

Along with Paul the band features his familiar line-up, comprising Mike Summerland (guitar), who has worked over the years with Blodwyn Pig, Georgie Fame, William Bell and others, Dave “Munch” Moore (keyboards) who was with No Dice, Mainsqueeze, Dick Heckstall-Smith and Pete Brown,  Nigel Hardy (bass), Peter Stroud (drums), plus Stephanie Whitelock & Karen O'Connor (vocals). We can guarantee that this will be a hugely entertaining evening featuring hits like “Delta Lady”, “The Letter”, “Marjorine”, “Unchain My Heart”, “Up Where We Belong” and many more to mark a special occasion.

The Club looks forward to seeing you there – food will be available as usual.
