Forres and District Pipe Band

The grant from the Berry Burn Fund met the significant cost of hiring the Town Hall as our practice venue for 3 years. Without this financial support, the band may well have imploded and certainly the hugely successful Moray Youth Pipes and Drums Tuition Scheme would never have been conceived. The award allowed us to drive forward the tuition Scheme, develop the main band and to set up a Youth Band in a venue well suited for the purpose. It was beyond the fund raising capacity of the band to generate the Town Hall hire fees and we are all of us deeply indebted to Berry Burn for their support.
