Bucksburn, Lothian & Borders Police, Grampian Police Reportedly Recommended for Grade 1

The Music Board of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association has filed its re-grading decisions to the organization’s National Council, and has reportedly recommended that Lothian & Borders Police, Grampian Police, and Bucksburn & District move from Grade 2 to Grade 1.

The committee has also allegedly recommended that Hydro Electric Buchan be moved back to Grade 2 from Grade 1.

The recommendations will be considered by the National Council (the governing body of the RSPBA) at a meeting on October 21-22. Generally, Music Board decisions are given quick approval by the National Council, although last May it rejected the Music Board’s pre-season recommendation to move Lothian & Borders Police back to Grade 1.

It is also thought that, if they are in fact officially upgraded, Grampian Police and Bucksburn will appeal to remain in Grade 2.
