Paeroa Highland Games 2020

On Saturday the Band competed at the Paeroa Highland Games! The Band came 4th Overall with the drummers coming second in the medley and the midsection coming second in the Street March. The Band is now fully in the new uniform which we think looks amazing 🙂 afterwards the band enjoyed playing in the tattoo with the massed bands. Next Contest is in Rotorua which we are looking forward to! Enjoy some photos from the day below

New Uniforms

The Band is currently in the process of changing our uniform. Our new Tartan is “Spirit of Scotland” We have changed to Grey Shirts, Silver Ties, Charcoal Socks, Silver Flashes and our new grey sporrans have just arrived!
