Forres & District Pipe Band

The grant from the Berry Burn Fund helped to meet the significant cost of providing uniforms for the youngsters in the Forres & District Junior Band. The 17 young pipers and drummers that currently form the band wear their new uniforms with pride and confidence as they represent the Town in various community events throughout the year. The next stage in the tuition programme is to introduce instruction on the pipes and drums into the Forres Schools as a permanent self-sustaining programme supported by the Scottish Schools Pipes and Drums Trust.
