Just as the 2018 competition season gets under way, Grampian Police Scotland Pipe Band is already hitting the high notes.  These early celebrations stem from Balmoral Group’s Chairman and Managing Director Jim Milne agreeing to extend their sponsorship of the Band until 2020.


Steve Gibb, Balmoral Group’s Public Relations Manager said, “The Police Pipe Band has formed part of the musical heritage in the north east of Scotland for more than a century.  As well as competing, the Band finds time to perform for many good causes. Balmoral Group is pleased to continue supporting the Band and we are confident it will continue to thrive”.


The Band’s Honorary President, Temporary Superintendent Richard Craig commented, “Grampian Police Scotland Pipe Band greatly appreciates the ongoing support afforded by Balmoral Group.  This two years extension to the existing sponsorship agreement with Balmoral Group will allow the Band to continue its good work in the north east and hopefully make further progress within the competition arena.  Mr. Milne’s personal interest has assured the Band’s ongoing wellbeing”.
