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!
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 .

STOP PRESS - SAVING YOU MONEY
Costs rise - petrol, rates... 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.
