World Pipe Band Championships

Several members, families and friends of the Band attended the World's in Glasgow this year. A great day out.

The Grade 1 Championships were won by the Field Marshall Montgomery from Northern Ireland.

Grade 4a was won by the Scottish Borders band, which contains players from Hawick and Stow. Many congratulations to them.

Civic Week 2011

This year's Civic Week was another great success for the Band. Good numbers meant that the Band was always well represented and the new look uniform won approval.

We were delighted and honoured to receive the Jim Patterson Memorial Rose Bowl. The award is made each year to an organisation active in the town.

Picture is of the Band from the Sunday Sashing Ceremony at the beginning of the week and the attached video is from the Monday evening return of the ride-out to Norham; it confirms many rumours!
