A FAIFLEY activist was flying the flag for Clydebank and Milngavie at the reopening of the Scottish Parliament on Saturday.
Brian Rocks, 53, was selected to be the constituency's Local Hero for the ceremonial launch of the new session.
Gil Paterson MSP was proud to welcome Brian, who he specially selected for the reopening for raising awareness of epilepsy.
Brian is the chairman of West Dunbartonshire Epileptic Support Group.
He said: "It was fantastic to have Brian through at Holyrood for the reopening of the new session. He and his brother David had a brilliant time and joined dozens of others like them, who dedicate their lives to helping others.
“People like Brian need to be recognised for their efforts to make the world a better place, and that's why I nominated him as our Local Hero.
“I wish Brian the best of luck in the future for raising awareness of epilepsy around Clydebank and Milngavie and the whole of Dunbartonshire.”
Brian has led campaigns dispelling myths surrounding epilepsy, using his own experiences to the benefit of others.
His campaigning has also led to training sessions, involving local police and fire officers, in assisting those suffering from epilepsy and to expand their knowledge of the symptoms of epilepsy and the similarities it has to other conditions.
