We are delighted to share a message from a former band member who has gone on to great things after his time with GSPDA had come to an end.
“Hi guys, hope you are all well? I just want to say a huge thanks to the two Iains that started me off learning the pipes. I had to leave Govan when I moved to Renfrew and if the two Iains didn’t start me on the pipes I wouldn’t be at the stage i am just now with the band that Iain helped me to get into.
I am so happy that Iain Watson helped me get into this band because we’ve just managed to win the European Championships in Forres. I’ll never forget the Govan band because if they never asked me to start pipes i probably wouldn’t be playing pipes just now. Take care everyone. Good luck in your competitions.”
It just goes to show what can be accomplished when you put your mind to it. We are very fortunate to have some really top class piping tutors helping the charity.
Onwards and upwards!
