The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association (RSPBA) today closed its headquarters in Washington Street, Glasgow in response to updated guidelines issued by the United Kingdom government.

The RSPBA’s Board of Directors issued this statement today: “In response to the revised Government guidelines regarding COVID-19, we have closed our Headquarters building at 45 Washington Street in Glasgow to safeguard our staff, members, and volunteers.

“Although our Scottish (25th July) and World (14th /15th August) Championships are still on the calendar at this point in time, we are liaising closely with the promoters of these events West Dunbartonshire Council and Glasgow Life respectively. We are meeting online weekly with Glasgow Life to review the situation regarding the Worlds and will advise as soon as any decisions are made.

“If you have any trophies still to be returned for any of this year’s major championships, please keep hold of these for the time being.

“In these trying times we must all do our part to minimise the spread of Coronavirus. Please make sure you keep your friends and family safe and follow the guidelines issued by the Government and health professionals.”
