Many congratulations to our soprano cornet star Scott Forrest, who has been nominated in the Player of the Year category at the prestigious 4barsrest awards.
After recovering from a broken wrist earlier this year, 'Gump' - as he is affectionately known across Scottish banding - was in thrilling form at the National Championships of Great Britain and also at the Scottish Open, where he won the Best Instrumentalist prize.
Well done also to Professor Nicholas Childs, who has been nominated as Conductor of the Year for his work with Black Dyke Band, NASUWT Riverside Band, Krohnengen Brass Band, the National Children's Band and Whitburn.
A panel of judges will decide the winners, with the awards announced on Christmas Day #gogump
