HAWICK Saxhorn Band’s senior and youth outfits hit the high notes by winning their respective sections at a region-wide contest in Langholm.

The Scottish Borders Brass bands entertainment competition, at which the standard was extremely high, attracted musicians ranging from senior to development and novice – all of whom were eager to entertain with their pieces.

And with both of the Hawick bands victorious, a spokesperson said: “They were all delighted to receive the very much-deserved awards.”

The youth band is back on stage at this weekend’s Scottish championships, while the seniors are preparing to entertain townsfolk at various venues, including a Christmas concert in Tower Mill on December 18.
