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
