    That is me, Stephen Parker, dressed in claret and gold on the HC&AC float holding onto the four trophies. My dad was assistant secretary at Fartown and I was the ball boy. We polished the trophies the night before but on the day they were not tied on very securely so I had to hold onto them for the entire pageant.
