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.

The next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 19th October when the Club welcomes for the first time THE STAN BLAND BAND, one of the hardest-working groups on the club and pub scene, working consistently across West and North London and Hertfordshire – which a look at their gig schedule on the Lemonrock web site will confirm.

They are led by guitarist and singer Stan Bland, who was with the cult band The Bozos in the 70s & 80s and more recently with The Philistans.

The band also features on keyboards and vocals a face familiar to you as a member of our charity event house band The Chain Gang, Kevin Welling, who has also performed at the Club as a member with Karl Green’s band Dave’s Not Here, and in earlier years played & recorded with 'Sparrow' in the early 70s with Elaine Paige others from the hit musical 'Hair' and more recently with Richard Scarfe (Love Affair).

Bassist Martin Connolly has played stints with Rick Wakeman, and drummer Russ Chaney was with the top blues/rock outfit The Mick Clarke Band (he of Killing Floor fame), The Larry Miller Band and others.

Their well-honed act features classic rock and pop from the 60s and 70s in proper Sunbury Music Club style, and they will be a welcome addition to our Music Night roster.

There’s more info on their Facebook page at https://en-gb.facebook.com/StanBlandBand.

Food will be available as usual.
