Iain Gray MSP has tabled a motion in the Scottish Parliament congratulating Dalkeith and Monktonhall Brass Band on its success at the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain.
The Prestonpans-based band took third place and won the National trophy at the championships which were held in Cheltenham.
Mr Gray’s motion commends the members of the band and its supporters, which include Castlepark Bowling Club, Prestonpans British Legion, Prestonpans Labour Club and East Lothian Council.
Iain Gray MSP said:
“Dalkeith and Monktonhall Brass Band has long been an important part of the cultural life of East Lothian, and always received fantastic support from the local community in Prestonpans.
“This result at the British Championships has been described as probably the highest accolade the band has achieved since its formation. Given the many previous successes the band has had, this really is an outstanding achievement.
“My parliamentary motion marks the band’s success and commends its members, as well as all those who have supported it over the years.”
