Having lived in our house in Lower Sunbury for 12 years we have inevitably amassed a lot of clutter. A change is as good as a rest, so rather than moving house (as many people do after 10 years) we decided on a bit of a facelift.
We are blessed in Walton to be close to water in any direction we turn. But we don’t always know how to make the most of it. So here are a few thoughts.
January is the time of year to reflect on making some changes. Yes we may have gained a few pounds over the festive season and most of us will have had a few too many drinks.
We were contacted recently by the owner of a Honda Jazz who had their catalytic converters removed in broad daylight by thieves in the area.
It may sound like a bizarre wish, but when I was a child I wanted to go to school at St Trinian’s. It looked like such fun. Well, recently I fulfilled my childhood ambition.
One of the beautiful spectacles on the Thames is the tradition of swan upping. So, have you seen it? If not, it is really worth seeking it out this July.
Swan Upping dates back to the 12th century.
Meet Vicci Davidson. She has a warm laugh, a big personality and wears the highest heel shoes you can imagine! Vicci is the new Minister of Sunbury Methodist Church.
Congratulations to the three winners of this years Community Awards from Rotary Club of Sunbury & Shepperton. The evening was attended by the Deputy Mayor and his wife as well as local councillors Vivienne Leighton and Robin Sider.
Well done to those of you who kept fingers crossed for the weather on Shepperton Fair Day. While Fair Day dawned with a very dodgy looking forecast, the storm gods cooperated with us.

Think High Sheriff and I bet you think of Robin Hood? Well I was personally held up by the High Sheriff of Surrey recently, so here is my merry tale…
The Towpath in Shepperton is a world away from the dark, smoky atmosphere of a Jazz club, but this is where Peter Ind has settled after an adventurous life.
I sat having a coffee recently with two long term residents of Lower Sunbury. They were reminiscing on how the village was in times gone by.
A few weeks ago, we heard that the recommendations for a healthy daily intake of fruit and veg had now been revised to SEVEN portions.
In this months Sunbury Matters we again look to the recent flooding that has affected our area. Many of us just about got through it unscathed, but for many more in our community it has been a tragedy.
