Smart ties for the Langholm Town Band’s big weekend

Muckle Toon tartan for Cheltenham

 
 
 

A GENEROUS donation from Pollyanna’s has allowed the Langholm Town Band to purchase new Muckle Toun Tartan ties for their trip to the National Brass Band Championships this weekend.

The band was keen to have a link between the town and the occasion and decided the tartan should be used in a new band tie to mark the qualification.

Created by Alan Miller at ‘Yarns to Yearn For’, the ties were presented to the band on Saturday morning following the bands’ latest rehearsal.

The younger members of the band also received a commemorative bear from Alan Miller and Paula Shorland of Pollyanna’s.
