Group name: St Andrews & North East Fife
This group is a part of Forth Valley, Fife & Tayside Area.
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
The Group takes its members from half the landward area of Fife, with members from the foot of the Lomonds to St. Andrews and from Levenmouth to Newport-on-Tay. It now has 100 members, 20-30 can be expected on an average walk and walks are held every two weeks throughout the year.
Early campaigns included taking part in the protests at the sale of Forestry Commission estates and consequent loss of access to recreational land. The Group also took an active part in reconnoitering sections of the Fife Coastal Path when it was being developed. The Group contributes actively to both Area and Scottish level affairs.
