Summary of Monitoring Forms at Meeting on 3 October 2017

The Trustees require successful applicants to complete a Monitoring Form on completion of the funded project to ensure that funds are used for the purposes that they were awarded.

A summary of the Monitoring Forms reviewed at the meeting on 3rd October 2017 is given below:-

 

i) Stop Talk Fife

Counselling clients will continue to benefit from this service that is offered at a minimum cost of £10 per session

 

ii) St Andrews Boys Brigade

The work to repair the drains was carried out to our complete satisfaction. It means that the BB Hall can remain open and fully functional.

 

iii) Support in Mind

All members of the group benefitted from these activities. It has helped to awaken them to what the local community has to offer and has opened opportunities to engage more with the community and become less isolated, to the benefit of their mental health.

 

iv) Madras FP Ladies Hockey

The senior team (who won the Midlands league division 1, won the Midlands league cup and were semi finalists in the Scottish District Cup in 2016-17) have benefitted as they will have new playing strips with a strong identity for 2017-18. The junior shirts are similar design to the seniors, so the juniors have a strong club identity too. Junior club members (aged 12-16) received weekly coaching, and the senior teams (both men’s and ladies clubs) have benefitted by having a larger pool of players as a result of the development squad. Approx 25 juniors attended the weekly training, for which some pitch hire has been paid for by this grant. Juniors were able to play in monthly Midlands festivals and locally arranged friendly matches. 

The club has entered a second team in the Midlands league for the first time in over 15 years. This will enable the older juniors who have been attending training to get match practise and provide a pathway into the first team. It will also help retain senior club members and give more opportunities for participation in sport in the St Andrews area. 

 

v) Virtual Open Worlds Group

We had a high turnout for our educational events, especially for our "Pokémon Go" Tour. Furthermore, the interactives in the gallery, most noticeably the post-it note wall on which people had the opportunity to write down their favourite memory of St Andrews, were very popular, as seen from comments to the front of house staff and comments on evaluation forms. 

For the Festival of Museums Weekend, we organised a Victorian Fayre for the local community. We had a turnout of around 200 people and our evaluation forms showed countless comments about how more events for the community similar to the one we had organised should be developed. 

 

vi) StAndEN

The benefits of these tablets will be felt well into the future and I would like to thank the St Andrews Community Trust for providing the funds to purchase these as it has made a significant difference to our day to day working practices and the service we provide to vulnerable clients. One benefit we had not predicted in our application is the savings of paper and computer ink as we move towards a paperless service. For StAndEN, an environmental Charity this has been an added bonus. 

 

vii) Madras Boys Hockey

We were able to purchase the following equipment:

Full goalkeeping kit including helmet, Training bibs and balls.

We would like to extend our thanks to all members of the community trust for providing the requested funding – it really has made a difference to be able to train and play using top quality kit and equipment, especially ensuring the safety of the goalkeeper during training and matches.

 

viii) MUSA

We had a high turnout for our educational events, especially for our "Pokémon Go" Tour. Furthermore, the interactives in the gallery, most noticeably the post-it note wall on which people had the opportunity to write down their favourite memory of St Andrews, were very popular, as seen from comments to the front of house staff and comments on evaluation forms. 

For the Festival of Museums Weekend, we organised a Victorian Fayre for the local community. We had a turnout of around 200 people and our evaluation forms showed countless comments about how more events for the community similar to the one we had organised should be developed 

 

ix) 8th Fife St Andrews Scout Group

Six lights fitted. Will enable safe access in the dark and allow activitys to take place outside. Many thanks for your continuing support.

 

x) Strathkinness Community Woodland

Sourcing of storage and equipment was successful and on budget. Our volunteers and the students have the proper equipment to assist in the project. Visitors to the woodland have improved access to the site and pathways.

We would like to improve pedestrian access to the woods from Strathkinness. Fife Council lack funding. We propose to create a new pedestrian access at the north endow the wood and the volunteers and students will be a starting that work in the next few weeks.
