THERE was success in the Highlands for Lochgelly High School Pipe Band at the weekend.

The LHS band made the long journey to Inverness on Saturday for the European Pipe Band Championships looking to build on the successes at the Benarty Pipe Band Competition last weekend.

And the band continued what has been a very good campaign as the Drum Corp were awarded 1st place and Crowned European Champions.

The band also impressed the judges to collect with by achieving Joint 2nd place Overall.

The LHS Pipe Band mentor Tom brown said: "The Band's Drum Instructors, Paul Brown Ricky Clemison and Eilidh Moyes, were delighted with the young corps' result.

"After this hectic spell which has seen a lot of hard work rewarded the band will have a rest for a short time.

"They will resume their practices at the end of July and will be back in action in early August at Perth Games and then the World Championships in Glasgow."
