A LOCAL band leader would like to thank the community that he says have helped him win a prestigious award.

Michael Robertson, brass teacher and conductor for Arbroath Instrumental Band as well as the Carnoustie and District Youth Brass Band is to be honoured by the Worshipful Company of Musicians later this year.

Mr Robertson is to receive the coveted Mortimer Medal for 2011 at a presentation in Symphony Hall, Birmingham, and then again in London.

Only the second Scotsman to receive the medal during its 16-year history, Mr Robertson feels Arbroath has played an instrumental part in his recognition for his work with children.

He said: “I would just like to thank the members of the Instrumental Band, their parents and the public of Arbroath who have always been very supportive over the years.

“Support like theirs is what makes it possible for bands like ours to succeed.”
