New drums for Harry Ferguson Memorial Pipe

THE Harry Ferguson Memorial Pipe Band recently received new drums from Dromara-based Smith Drumming Supplies.

The equipment boost was made possible with the assistance of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and National Lottery and the band was quick to thank both for their help. Meanwhile, the band remains on the lookout for learner and experienced pipers and drummers of any age.

The band rehearses from 7-9pm on Friday evenings in Drumlough Orange Hall (176 Dromara Road, Hillsboroug). As a local pipe band it plays at local functions and parades. A spokesperson said, “If you are interested in playing with the band you are invited to go to the rehearsal any Friday evening or for more information you can contact Andrew on 078 0183 1731.
