Sumner Community Residents Association

The Sumner Community Residents’ Association (SCRA) is a group of passionate local volunteers working together for the good of the community. Our home is the Sumner Hub at 57 Nayland Street. Thanks to our grant-funders, we employ a part-time Sumner Hub Manager to carry out SCRA’s strategy and create a welcoming space for visitors to ‘The Hub’.

Our History

The Sumner Residents’ Association (SRA) has served the Sumner community since the early 1900s. In 2011, the Sumner Community Group (SCG) was formed to support residents recovering from the damaging effects of the 2010-2012 earthquake sequence. An alliance was formed between the two groups, and in 2012, the SRA and SCG merged to become the Sumner Community Residents’ Association (SCRA). Initially, SCRA operated out of the old NZ Police building at 57 Nayland Street and, for a short period, used a small office in the newly opened Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre. However, as “The Hub” became a well-known name and with NZ Police extending use of the building to include the garage, old cell, and driveway, the committee renamed themselves the Sumner Community Residents’ Association & Hub in 2022.
