Local environmental conservation group, Footprint East Neuk, ran a 2 day tree planting event at Craigtoun on 28th November and 5th December 2021, during which over a thousand new trees were planted. The competition to name the new wooded area was won by 11-year-old Jessica Balgowan, who came up with the name Rustling Tree Wood.
Fife-based Photographer & Filmmaker, Brett Currie, attended the event as a volunteer and also took footage to put together this video for Footprint East Neuk, which we have kindly been allowed to share, courtesy of https://www.brettcurrie.com/
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
At the 2019 AGM, Kyffin Roberts indicated his wish to step down as Chair but agreed to continue in the role for a further year to give us time to plan for the way head.
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.
