HOW brilliant to have a young drummer involved in the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

This is an event which attracts thousands of spectators every summer and is really a part of the Festival atmosphere of the Capital at this time of year.

There have been many people from the Cowdenbeath-Lochgelly area who have taken part in the Tattoo over the decades but Lochgelly's Kieran Bissett must be the youngest local person to have been involved.

It has been an amazing year for the Lochgelly High School pupil and his family have every reason to be proud of him.
