Peterhead and District Pipe Band ran a crest competition for local school children to design a crest for the band.

Band secretary Carol- Anne Murphy said: “We had a really good response and many children took part. It was a hard decision as there were many good entries but in the end a young girl from Central School took first prize. And with the help of Jason Nelson who is the artist involved with the Roanheads Community Art Project, who helped perfect the original design.”

“The winners were 1st prize winner Megija Kuke, 2nd joint prize winner Darcy Burrell and 3rd prize joint winner is Valerijs Amenovs from Peterhead Central School and from Buchanhaven Primary School the winners were joint 2nd and 3rd place winners are Daniel Stephen, Carly O’Brien and Rebecca Meijerewith.”
