A perfect Summer’s day in early June brought crowds into Lower Sunbury village for the annual Open Gardens event. As seems to be the way during our village events (I am thinking Christmas market last year), Thames Waters saw fit to once more shut Thames Street
As we mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force, it seems fitting to recall events in the life of Flt.Lt. Dominic Bruce, who once lived at Blakesley Lodge, 2 Green St, Sunbury.
In the May issue of Sunbury Matters we mentioned in our welcome page that the Lower Sunbury Business Community (LSBC) had plans to erect a boat filled with flowers on Thames Street. Group members were very keen on this idea. Partly it would fill an empty space (where the old public loos used to be!) and of course it would brighten up the village.
I have mentioned William Schaw Lindsay in a previous article about the great flood of 1877, but I thought I would outline a bit more of his very full life. He was Lord of the Manor of Shepperton from 1857 until his death 20 years later, and during that time did much to reform the village. Perhaps his most lasting achievement was to bring the railway to Shepperton in 1864, after the collapse of Walton Bridge made access to the nearest station at Walton problematic.
In this months issue we look at the community celebrating summer with a wonderful Open Gardens, a street party and a floral boat tribute to the founder of the local business group. We also bring the story of Flight Lieutenant Dominic Bruce of Blakesley Lodge in Green St during the year of the centenary of the RAF.
As you may have gathered by now, Spelthorne Council has just disseminated its Issues and Options document for consultation. The consultation will run until 25 June 2018.
In this months issue you can read all about the Lendy Lion which now stands in the Walled Garden. Also the Sunbury Suffagette who is commemorated on the plaque in Parliament Square. In addition we highlight local issues such as the Local Plan, parking on the pavements and potholes!
The ‘Lendy Lion’ is today a well-known centrepiece of the Walled Garden in Lower Sunbury, but this in is fact its third home. As seen in this photo dating from about 1905, it was originally erected beside the Thames, just opposite St. Mary’s Church.
The County Highways Authority recently claimed that pavement parking per se is illegal in this Borough. This is factually incorrect which is a bit of a worry given their role as the ultimate arbiters on road safety matters.
This year marks the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, which gave some women over 30 the right to vote, although women over 21 had to wait until an Act of 1928 to gain the same voting rights as men.
