Grade 3 Pipe Band


The Grade 3 the band competes with distinction at various contests throughout New Zealand.


The band is seen as a stepping stone for younger members of the Society to the Grade 1 band, and is well suited also to those players who wish to compete without the high level of commitment required for Grade 1.

At the 2021 NZ Pipoe Band Championships in Hawke's Bay, the band won the NZ Grade 3 Championship.
