Welcome to CRA

A very warm welcome to the Craigpark Residents' Association


Craighall and Craighall Park, established over 100 years ago, are well known for their convenient location, amenities and quality of residential life, and are a very special part of Johannesburg.

A community only thrives, however, if its residents are active in its affairs.
We need you - and you need us!
Do your bit by becoming a member today! The 2015 subs form is now online for your convenience - thank you to all residents who join us and help makes ours a community that stands together. Check here to see if you've paid your 2015 subs. Please contact Treasurer Sue if you have a query.
Take pride in your City - report faults with Look & Log.

The CRA, originally formed in 1950 and renamed in the 1970s, is now over 60 years old, and so possibly one of the longest established RAs in Joburg. It plays an extremely important and proactive role in looking after the interests of residents and has become a force to be  reckoned with .

Costs rise - but when did you last look at your insurance costs? How much are you spending a month? The CRA has negotiated two short term insurance affinity arrangements - one is with Alexander Forbes and the other with Commrisk Insurance Brokers (Pty) limited.

We are sure that you'll be surprised at how much money you could save and, as a value-added benefit, help underwrite other CRA projects.  

NOTE! 2015 AGM - thank you to our Ward Cllr Anthony Still for your affirmation that the CRA is one of the most effective RA's in Joburg.
Chairman's report - review for the past year (April 2014 to May 2015) - so much has happened, was investigated / dealt with - always in YOUR interests!
Update on the huge fibre optic network project with CSS for security cameras with add-on benefits for internet connections; the town planning and development challenges; our Business Forum is formed; Craighall Sports Club revtialised; welcoming Dunkeld West residents to the CRA ... please find time to read this report - it's a reflection of what a group of committed volunteers can achieve - and insights into how to deal with living in Joburg today!

Memories of the Craighall Open Day Centenary celebration ...

The competition prizes reflected the generosity of our business community. The CRA has awarded such businesses a Community Award certificate - support those businesses which display the certificate!

"Communities must take interest in their local affairs because if they do not, they could end up being governed by people who have no interest in their welfare."
Thabo Mokwena, former CEO of SALGA (South African Local Goverment Association)

 This web site aims to inform residents and businesses about the area, where to obtain help and information, and news on issues and developments that affect us all. As with all CRA activities, this website - designed to be an information hub - has been developed by volunteers living in the area. We look forward to your contributions and suggestions.
