Press Coverage for Craigtoun

We have enjoyed some good press coverage for Craigtoun this week.

On Monday, we had a visit from our local MSP, Willie Rennie, who came to see the Communication Boards, which were installed in the park at the end of last year. The boards are the result of a collaboration between Fife Health and Social Care Partnership and Enable, and fully supported by the Friends of Craigtoun in their efforts to make Craigtoun Country Park accessible and enjoyable for all. The visit was detailed on Willie Rennie's social media and also covered with an article in The Courier.

On Tuesday, we received a boost to our campaign to restore the Dutch Village with another Courier Article highlighting the pressing need for action to stop this beloved landmark falling into further disrepair. Our search for photographs and cinematic footage of the interior of the Dutch Village continues and we would ask anyone who might be able to help with this to email us at:

Hello, I’m Jan and I’m a volunteer for Friends of Craigtoun. I have been coming to St. Andrews on holiday with my family since I was a toddler and a highlight was always our visits to Craigtoun Park

Eric's Story

Several years ago, I was advised to attend an NHS sponsored fitness class in Cupar as I had health problems and it was there that I met Tom, a volunteer at Craigtoun Country Park, and Kyff Roberts, who was the Chairman of the Friends of Craigtoun Country Park.  I live just five minutes away from the Park in Strathkinness but had not visited the place in over 30 years.

Peggy's Story

When I heard that Craigtoun was in danger of closing and that a determined group of people were going to try and ensure that didn’t happen, I was only too glad to help in any way I could.  Like many people in this area, I had known and loved Craigtoun all my life and the thought of losing this gem didn’t bear thinking about.
