Welcome to the January issue of Sunbury Matters. The issue is filled with offers from local companies and businesses. Having heard recently that the painting we donated was auctioned for £550 for local charity Their Future Today, we look at the auction in the 1970’s to raise money for the Riverside Arts Centre. They auctioned everything from Harold Wilson’s tobacco pouch to Elton Johns boots!
