Giorgio Berardelli—successful operation Eight-year old Giorgio had his third and final open-heart operation at York Hill Hospital, Glasgow, on Tuesday. The family are so grateful for the Masses and prayers that were said for the success of Giorgio's operation, and the great news is that  he is making a wonderful recovery. He is such a brave little boy who has captured the hearts of everyone. His parents, Paulo and Elspeth, and his grandparents, have had a very anxious time, but, thank God, as his  progress continues, he should soon be home with his brother and sisters where I am sure there will be a great welcome for him. We will keep a special Easter egg for Giorgio! Those who were at the Lochaber Music School  concert in St. Margaret’s last Christmas, will remember Giorgio’s performance on the xylophone which was given a rapturous applause. His aunt, Dr. Chiara, is a very good pianist, and also a composer, and has brought out a CD of her own songs, sung and accompanied at the piano by herself, with background support from other musicians - so there is music in the family! Lochaber High School’s Senior Wind band, conducted by brass  instructor, Mark Reynold, a parishioner of St. Margaret’s, gained the title of Scottish Champions at the National Wind Band Final in Perth last Saturday. Despite initial fears that severe weather would prevent them from reaching the final, the young musicians played extremely well and were awarded a Gold Plus award, making them Scottish champions in the Achieving Band class. Depute head, Paul Reynolds, a brother of Mark, said: “This is a first for Lochaber High School and we are immensely proud of the  band members.” My grateful thanks to Stuart Taylor, editor of Lochaber News, for sending me the photo by email, and also for permission to use the text from this week’s edition.
