IT'S Christmas, and the Coffs Coast Pipes and Drums are spreading the spirit.

The band have been performing at local nursing homes and aged care facilities over the past couple of weeks as part of their ongoing commitment to the community.

Playing a variety of traditional Scottish tunes, Australiana tunes, war tunes and new favourites of Christmas tunes, the team bring joy and laughter to their audiences.

It's been a busy time – last Saturday the band marched Santa into Centro Toormina – much to the delight of onlookers; and this Saturday, the band will perform at the Air Cadets passing-out parade before heading onto the Haven Nursing home and aged care facility.

They'll then be playing in the Coffs Harbour City Centre from approximately 11am. Come along and enjoy the entertainment in the city centre while you take a break from your Christmas shopping. The band will celebrate with a Christmas party at the Jetty Foreshores on December 16 then have a few weeks break until the new year.

Coffs Coast Pipe Band can now be found on their new web page.
