Gift of Christmas Appeal 2021


The Cocoa Tree
is a drop off point for the GIFT OF CHRISTMAS APPEAL, FIFE, a registered charity, now in its 6th year -  aiming to ensure that every child and young person in Fife, aged 0-18 years, has gifts to open on Christmas morning.

The appeal runs from now until 12th December. In 2021 it is estimated that 1 in 5 children in Fife are living in poverty. Donations should be brand new and unopened, single items or complete gift bags and suitable for children aged 0-18. Thank you very much. More details at the Gift Of Christmas website here.


St Fillan's Cave


St Fillan's Cave in Cove Wynd is now open for visitors.

The key for access is available from the Cocoa Tree at a cost of £1 per adult.

The floor of the cave is often wet - so please take care as it can be slippery underfoot.


St Fillan's Cave is a Y-shaped natural hollow in a rock outcrop c.80 yds N of Pittenweem harbour. It is 93 feet long. The cave was restored by the late Canon de Voil, Dean of Brechin, and reconsecrated in 1935.


Summer Fayre 2021


A huge thanks to everyone who came to, and contributed to our Summer Fayre on 31st July.

We couldn't be more pleased, and thank everyone for their support in donating bric-a-brac, books, baking, raffle prizes and plants etc. for the stalls.


It was a treat after so long to safely share the St John's fayre again with our friends and neighbours and everyone seemed to have enjoyed the afternoon!
