The presentation was by Jenny Murray, who has been teaching the bagpipes, mainly to children, for many years now.

Jenny said she took up the pipes herself at the age of ten and then started playing in a local ladies’ band a little afterwards.

Members of the Rotary Club described her skill at nurturing young musicians as being “very plain for us all to see”.

She presented them with three of her pupils.

They each first played solo, then together in a selection of lively tunes, leaving club members “royally entertained”.

A Spokesperson for Banchory Rotary Club passed on the message: “Thank you, Jenny, you’re an inspiration.”
