Ipswich Poppy Appeal

Society pipers made a great job of helping to launch the British Legion’s annual Poppy Appeal in Ipswich on October 28.  Pictured here are Graham MacAusland, Martin Combes, Tod Dedman  and Jim Jarvie.  Abbie Willett was also there!

Martlesham Centenary

We had a great day out.  In the end there wasn’t as much piping as we planned – but what there was sounded pretty good…..

Ipswich Library Multi-Cultural Day

Our pipers – Andrew Nimmons, Jim Jarvie, Albie Willett, Clive Wilson and Alex Carruthers – kicked off the day on Saturday June 24 with some great tunes.  Always a terrific event and a pleasure to be invited.

Pipes in the Park June 18

Society pipers came home from Colchester last weekend with a good harvest of prizes.  Essex Caledonian pipe band came 2nd in the grade 4 march; 3rd in the grade 4 MSR and 2nd in the grade 3 medley – well done Pipe Major John Young, Neil Wilson and Wally Wallace.  Albie Willett came third in the under 18s 6/8 march and MSR; Rod Caird came third in the amateur piobaireachd.  Other members did a great job stewarding the event. It was a very hot day; all credit to the pipers and members for helping to make it a brilliant day out.

The band results in full are on the Scotland in Colchester website: https://www.scotlandincolchester.com/results
