Perth and Kinross Kirking of the Council 2011

The procession of councillors, flanked by the High Constables of Perth was led as usual by the Perth & District Pipe Band.

Following the church service a ceremony was held to instate a Piper to the City of Perth, in this case pipe major Alistair Duthie as reconition of the service the pipe band has given the city of Perth for over 120 years.

In addition the Provost was re-instated as the patron of the band, a tradition that had been lost following local authority re-organisation in 1975.

Perth and Kinross Chief Executive Bernadette Malone installed the pipe major as the Piper to the City, whilst the Provost John Hulbert attached a banner to the drone of the Pipe Major another sign or recongition of the role the band as a whole has played historically.
