For Sale/Wanted

This page is for branch members (individuals or bands) to advertise surplus band equipment for sale or post requests for equipment.



After several successful years of service, Pipe Major Johnny Watson has decided to step down as Pipe Major of the band to pursue his career and social interests, though he will remain a member of the band.

The band is seeking a suitably qualified and experienced person to take up the role of Pipe Major.

The Pipe Band was formed in the early 1960's along with the Military Band. Both Bands developed steadily over the years and throughout the eighties and nineties the Pipe Band was playing all over Britain and Europe and was very successful in competitions.

The Band receives the full support of the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Sports and Social Club including free use of excellent practice facilities and transport for engagements.

Practices are held at Fire Service Headquarters Training Centre, Bradford Road, Birkenshaw, West Yorkshire BD11 2DY. (Junction of the A58 and A651). The Band currently practices on Monday evenings, between 7.30pm and 10.00pm.

The Band is registered with the RSPBA and is keen to enter both indoor and outdoor competitions and will welcome any experienced players though tuition is also given. The Band currently competes in Grade 4.

The Band is engaged to play for a wide variety of engagements all year round and also performs at concerts together with the Military Band. The Band plays mainly in Daywear and has No.1 Uniform and wears the Ancient Red Ramsay tartan.
