The Coldstream Pipe band Pipe-athon on Saturday 20th October was a great success. We collected £427.06 in the collecting tins on the day. With sponsor money still to come in this looks like it has been a very worth while exrcise. Thanks to everyone who took part.
Thanks also To Elspeth Bell, Carol Cockburn, David Guthrie and Wendy Guthrie for carying the collecting tins. We would also like to thank the Castle Hotelfor providing the ie, beans and chips to the participants free of charge (We were definately ready for them).
Coldstream Pipe band would also like to thank all of the people who kindly donated.
Coldstream Pipe Band visited Mondrepius in the Thierache region of France from 29thAugust 2012 to 3rd September 2012.
The Band played at a parade to commemorate the Liberation in the nearby town of Marle. We also played at a concert to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the Harmonie De Mondrepius and at the La Capelle cheese fair.
Coldstream Civic Week got off to a wet start with the result that the Sashing Ceremony was held in the Parish Kirk, followed by the usual parade to the town war memorial. However, the weather improved throughout the rest of the Week.
Coldstream Pipe Band come from the Border town of Coldstream. We are led by Pipe Major Duncan Bell. Practice nights are every Monday evening in the Primary School and you are very welcome to join us.
