A touch of Scotland came to the Alexandra Nursery School in the form of Piper Brian Mutch and Drummer Alec Bingham from the Bolton Caledonia Pipe Band. The two musicians visited and played at the Nursery as part of their Scotland Day. Brian originally from Aberdeenshire and Alec from Ayrshire are part of the growing Pipe Band in the Bolton area and are keen to encourage youngsters to become interested in playing the Pipes and Drums.
Alec who is also secretary of the band said “ like Brian and I many of the band members have been involved in pipe bands since they were kids and when learning the pipes in particular you can’t get started early enough”.
