Communication Boards at Craigtoun

Communication Boards have now come to Craigtoun, thanks to a joint venture between Fife Health and Social Care Partnership and Enable. Communication / Chat / Core Boards help to bridge the gap between those who are verbal and those who are non-verbal. A Communication Board can be used to ask questions, express needs and wants, offer a choice and assist in making decisions. You will find 3 of these boards in the park - one at the Front Gate, one adjacent to the Adventure Playground and one at the gazebo in the Rose Garden, which is a secure area where younger children can have a bit of freedom without wandering too far.

Jan's Story

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.
