THE HM Band of the Royal Marines Scotland will hit the high notes in Limekilns as they return for a charity concert.

Following a sell-out event last year, the band will be back at Limekilns Church on Thursday, May 16 when they will put on another chamber concert to help raise funds to repair the historic pier in the village.

The event will again feature the skills of the Royal Marines musicians during seven self-contained sessions, each lasting about 20 minutes and emphasising the individual prowess of the players.

The programme will feature soloists, a brass quintet, a flute quartet, a ceilidh band, a jazz trio, and a trombone quartet.

In welcoming the band back to the village, Limekilns Heritage Trust said it "gratefully acknowledges" their enthusiastic support. Only 150 seats are available for the evening with more than 60 already booked. Entry is free, however, donations to the Trust can be made.

Trust representatives will be at the church office between 10am and noon on Tuesday, May 7 until Friday, May 10.

Over £50,000 has already been raised to restore the pier with the Trust working towards reaching their £100,000 to save the eroded and crumbling structure.
