Jemma is still keeping her mother's name in her memory, and as it has always been known as this. Although she now lives and works in London - she runs the Academy from there with the help of a dance teacher who takes the classes here.

As of February 2017 a new Beaver Scout Colony opened in the village.   

Beavers is the first and youngest section of the Scout Movement and open to boys and girls aged between 6 and 8 years old.

Beavers enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends.

Run by Leaders from the village, Strathkinness Beavers meet on Wednesday nights in the Village Hall between 6-7pm.  As part of the 8th Fife Scout Group,  Beavers can "swim up" to Cubs and then Scouts in St Andrews at the appropriate age.

For more information please contact Ross Mackenzie ( or  Lorraine Thomson ( in the first instance.
