Bob Parker, the Mayor of Christchurch City, before the national championships, promised the band a “champions cup of tea” should they be successful at the National Pipe Band Championships. Well, true to his word, Bob offered the band one on their return, and on the 18th of April some of the Christchurch residents of the band went along and enjoyed an afternoon of tea and chat with the Mayor and his wife. Pipe Major Richard Hawke played a few tunes, and the Mayor took great delight in checking out the silverware the band collected.
