The Sumac Centre is a volunteer-run social & community space based in Forest Fields, Nottingham.
Sunday Brunch continues every Sunday from 11am – 2pm, as it has without a break since March 2020.
People’s Kitchen communal meals are held on some Saturdays for fundraising events, such as the monthly Punk for the Homeless gigs.
The Sumac also provides resources and a meeting space for groups and individuals working to promote social justice, environmental awareness, peace, and animal rights.
The space is sometimes used for music events, film showings and sales in order to raise money and awareness. We are self financed, supported by donations.
Throughout the pandemic Sumac Centre and Veggies Catering Campaign hosted a Community Food Hub for the distribution of foods around our community, for those isolated at home or those that wished to distance themselves from supermarkets. This continues on a smaller scale, with packaged goods, ‘loose’ wholefoods and eco-household products.
We organise co-operatively, without managers or bosses, and all volunteers have a say in how the centre is run. Open organising meetings are (usually) held on the 1st Monday of each month (including online participation) and operate by consensus.
Our aim is to provide a safer space for local people to meet other socially conscious individuals in a relaxed and friendly environment.
