The 2017 competition season got underway in the best possible way at the weekend. Taking part in the Lothian & Borders Branch contest at James Young High,Livingston, the band entered two bands and won both 1st and 2nd prize in the grade 3 mini band contest.
In the solo piping events the band entered three players, with Pipe Major Neil Henderson finishing 3rd in the adult contest. In the 11 years and over, chanter event, Ruth Macdonald finished 1st in her first ever contest, with Connor Anderson taking 3rd place.
A fantastic effort all round, well done to all, especially Ruth’s proud father, piper Stephen Macdonald.
