The Vancouver Police Pipe Band has spent the last 100 years entertaining people around the globe, while at the same time acting as ambassadors for their country, province and city. As the world’s oldest, continuous serving police pipe band and official band of the City of Vancouver, with a regional population in excess of 2.5 million people, they are continually called upon to play for charity and community events, visiting royalty, heads of state and celebrities. In January 2014, the Mayor awarded Vancouver’s highest honour to the men and women of the Band – the Freedom of the City Award. The Band’s centenary peaked in June of 2014 when they travelled to England to play for the changing of the guard, at both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. This was the first time in the 300 years history of the iconic, internationally recognized ceremony that a non–military band was granted the honour.

You will not see us marching to South Memorial Park, to pay our respects or playing at the local Legions this November 11th.

We will however, be raising our glasses in memory of those men and women who gave their lives, for the freedoms we enjoy and experience every day.

Remember that for all our todays they gave their yesterdays.

One of the charities we were able to support last year while in India. was the The Guru Nanak Mission Hospital. This facility provides free services to those in need in the Punjab. Please consider supporting them; a small contribution can go a long way. https://t.co/d8XmTZcQff https://t.co/Owh1zAHRzz VPDPipeBand photo

Last year on this date, we visited the Golden Temple in Amritsar and the site of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, which occurred on April 13, 1919. Today, we are thinking of our friends in the Indian community, as they celebrate Vaisakhi during this unprecedented, difficult time. https://t.co/U6FmFLz4l2 VPDPipeBand photo

This Easter Sunday, pipers from all over the world were asked to strike up their pipes and play "Amazing Grace", to give encouragement to our fellow citizens at this very trying time in our fight against the Coronavirus pandemic. Here is a montage video of 3 of our band members. https://t.co/Ca9duC333s

Tonight we have a short clip of one of our members playing for his neighbours in Deep Cove, with a bit of a twist. Owen is playing in appreciation to all the Doctors, Nurses and First Responders working selflessly to keep us all healthy and safe. Thank you! https://t.co/uKW7xEF4pU
