It was great to hear Johnstone Pipe Band saw off some excellent competition to win two top prizes at the recent Pipe Band Championships in Paisley. Hundreds of pipers came from as far afield as Northumbria, Dunoon and Ayrshire to compete in this hugely successful contest and it was tough to impress the judges. So it is well done to the award winning band from my constituency who were awarded the top prize in the two toughest categories, the grade two March and the Strathspey and Reel. It was a fantastic day for Renfrewshire and my congratulations go to all who took part and the crowds who braved the weather to support the bands.
