Park Updates

New Images Uncovered

The coverage we received following visits to Craigtoun by journalists from the Courier and STV News in August generated quite a bit of interest and inspired many former visitors to the park to take a trip down memory lane as they dug out old photographs and cine film to send to us.  A selection of these have inspired a follow up article which is available to view at Online Courier and has also appeared in print this week in the Courier and Evening Telegraph. 

We are keen to gather more old photographs and cine film, and the memories that go with them, to strengthen our case as we campaign for funding to renovate the Dutch Village so, once again, we are appealing for any material that you might have to add to our archive.  Images of the inside of the Dutch Village would be of particular interest as these seem to be incredibly rare. Please contact us by e-mail in the first instance to:

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.
