A special presentation has been made to Newtongrange Silver stalwart David O'Connor in recognition of his years of dedicated service to the Midlothian outfit.

A former princiapl cornet and President at 'Nitten', David O'Connor retired from the band earlier this year, prompting the committee and band members to vote unanimously to recognise his contribution over many years' service.

The inscription reads as follows: "In recognition and appreciation of faithful and loyal service, David O’Connor is appointed an Honorary President of Newtongrange Silver Band."
