Guardians on the Go

We'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Guardians on the Go (GotGO) - a great community group that we are delighted to host at Craigtoun on Wednesdays throughout the year. In their own words......

"This fun and energetic group meets at Craigtoun Park every Wednesday at 10:30am during term-time in mostly all whatever the weathers! We do two-three laps of the park (walk or run) but we actually do so much more than just burn calories. We talk and walk. In the fresh air we share our stories of last night's lack of sleep, discuss questions about health visitors and primary schools all whilst getting out in nature. We have x5 running buggies which can be borrowed and stored nicely where we meet thanks to St Andrews Mens Shed. We enjoy a discounted cuppa in the cafe afterwards thanks to in the Friends of Craigtoun! We have a community of parents and carers online and in-person who connect with each other. Find out more via our private ever-growing facebook group (Guardians on the Go! | Facebook), which allows us to communicate what’s on. The activity promotes social, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health for children and adults alike – facilitated each week by Fiona Oxley, Mental Health & Exercise Coach (Facebook).

All very welcome to come along when suits you – please join our facebook group to find out more!"

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.
