This years concert was a great success and a big night for the Band and the Bell family, Rob, Elspeth and Duncan in particular.
The Concert was Rob's last gig as Pipe Major. This follows a lifetime's service to the Band and to the Town and Rob was rightly praised for this unstinting service. Gordon presented Rob with a crystal decanter and glasses from the Pipe Band, which without a doubt will be put to good use.
Duncan has agreed to take over from Rob as Pipe Major and everyone wishes him all success.
Elspeth was also honoured on the night as she was presented with the Brown Scott Quaich as the town’s citizen of the year by Martin Brimms of the Community Council.
As they always do, the Town supported the Band and the concert was very well attended, with £1239.40 made in support of band funds.
