About Us

Our Team

Craigtoun is run by a board of volunteer directors and has a small team of permanent staff, which is supplemented by volunteers and seasonal staff.

Doug Stephen


Doug was one of the founding members of the Friends of Craigtoun and was Vice Chairman under Kyffin Roberts before stepping up to Chair on Kyff’s resignation in 2020. Having moved to St Andrews as a youth, Doug enjoyed regular visits to Craigtoun when it was in its heyday before later introducing his own children and grandchildren to the park. Doug’s management skills and passion for the park have been key to the success of the Friends of Craigtoun.

Rhoda Wilson


Rhoda first came to Craigtoun as a visitor from Glasgow and has happy memories of bringing her children to the park on family days out when they were young. She moved to St Andrews permanently 10 years ago and, as a keen golfer, was captain of St Regulus for 2 years before joining the Board at Craigtoun in 2021. Rhoda has since been involved in a number of both long- and short-term projects within the park.

Paul Dixon

Park Manager

Paul was employed as the Friends of Craigtoun’s first Park Manager in February 2020 and had the onerous task of taking on this demanding new role against the backdrop of a global pandemic that plunged the whole future of the charity into uncertainty. With a successful military career behind him and now 2 untypical seasons at Craigtoun under his belt, Paul is very much hands-on in all areas of the park and its development.

Henry Paul

Funding Director

Henry first came to St Andrews as a navigator at RAF Leuchars in 1984 and has been involved with a number of groups in the town, as well as sitting on the St Andrews Community Council for 6 years. He helped set up Friends of Craigtoun in 2011 and has been involved in various ways ever since, including being a hands-on Duty Manager and helping bring both Park Run and Men’s Shed to Craigtoun. He joined the Board in 2018 and is responsible for fundraising and our campaign to refurbish the Dutch Village.

Friends of Craigtoun

We are very grateful for the support we receive from local businesses and individuals. Watch out for our new page, The Friends of Craigtoun Story, which we will be publishing later this year

Volunteering at Craigtoun

As a charity, the Friends of Craigtoun rely heavily on volunteers in all areas of the park and, although we have a great core team, we are always in need of more.
