Jonathon Simpson (S3) came second in the Pipe Major Willie Fergusson Competition held in Annan on Saturday 15 November. This is an invitational competition for the two best juvenile (under 18) pipers in each branch of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association which includes England and Northern Ireland.

Also this month, Kirsty Myles (S6) performed extremely well in the Great Britain Long Distance Trials held in Boston, Lincolnshire, winning the girls event by a massive 17 seconds. This is the first of a series of trials throughout the year which is aimed at selecting a crew to represent Great Britain in the World Championships. As a result of this trial Kirsty is likely to be invited to the high performance training camp at Christmas.
