Both bands enjoyed a very successful day at the Scottish Championships in Dumbarton with the Juvenile band finishing in 4th place and the Grade 1 band finishing 3rd overall… and an even more successful one at Shotts Highland Games this past weekend where both bands won their grades with 4 first places.
