The Strathkinness Community Trust was started in 2013 and oversees several activities around the village of Strathkinness; the Community Garden, the Community Orchard, Bishop’s Wood, the Village Green, the 201 Telephone Box Gallery and maintains containers and various plots of land around Strathkinness. The vast majority of work is carried out by volunteers with materials and equipment paid for by members’ subscriptions and funding from St. Andrews Community Trust and Fife Council.
The aims of the Trust are:
- To ensure the activities and events trustees organise are open to all and help to promote a sense of well-being and community within Strathkinness.
- To provide villagers of all ages and nearby communities with the opportunity to enjoy the range of activities we provide either by helping to develop and maintain them or just to view and support them in any way they wish.
- To cultivate and maintain the Trust locations by methods that are to the benefit of biodiversity and wildlife and help in the battle against Climate Change.
- Encourage the use of our locations for education of all ages both of groups and individuals.
- To ensure the Trust is financially viable and that locations and activities are organised with the Health and Safety of attendees and the general public in mind.
- To communicate regularly to members usually by email and by holding an AGM.
Our ambition is to ensure the Trust has long-term viability by making our locations and activities sustainable.

The annual subscription is £5 per year.
