QSM For Hastings Pipe Band Stalwart

Event Details





When Hastings man Ken Tobin was a lad he heard some pipe band music and liked what he heard.

What he heard led to a lifetime of devotion to the pipe band community and that devotion has seen him awarded a Queen’s Service Medal — something which left him slightly speechless.

“Out of the blue … total surprise,” he said.

“Pipe music has just been my love, my interest.”
