When we arrived home that night, a note had been pushed through the door asking the family to go to the Maes in Caernarfon straight away. And there was another memory that Glen and I will keep forever. The Maes was packed! As well as Dad's victory, Dilys Wyn's famous choir had also won. As we walked to the Maes, a crowd from Ysgol Syr Hugh school were enjoying the occasion. “Here he is!” said a voice. And all we saw was three or four muscular boys lifting Dad onto their shoulders, and carrying him through the crowd in the direction of the main Post office, where a temporary stage had been erected. The 'King' and the Choir were praised, both had given the warm-hearted people of the world-famous Town a real reason to rejoice in the shadow of the castle.
