The Sumner Historical Society is legendary in the Sumner-Redcliffs area. Its annual meeting is always well attended, with local notables always attending or tabling their apologies.
Based at the Sumner Museum, on the corner of Wakefield and Nayland St, the Society has done sterling work in preserving the history of the Sumner community. Right now we are hoping the their building will get the all-clear following the 4 September earthquake.
Here is a quick look around the museum and a chat with long-serving Society Treasurer, the delightful Kitty Fenton.
