A man who grew up in Distington and is now a choral vicar at St David's Cathedral in Pembrokeshire will return to West Cumbria on Saturday, April 27 with the choir he set up.

Former Whitehaven School pupil Vaughn Richardson became a chorister at St Peter's Church in the town aged seven.

Then at 12 began playing the organ under the direction of Workington organist Michael Cullen.

During that time he played on Saturdays at Our Lady and St Michael's Church in Banklands and was keen to give something back.

While in West Cumbria, Vaughn attended Lakes College before moving to Fleetwood, where he was part of St Peter's Church, then on to join the cathedral choirs in Blackburn.

He was then given a choral scholarship at St David's Cathedral, where he went on to become a permanent vicar choral, which sees him sing during services.

He now leads Adamas Voces, a choir made up of professional singers from across the UK who get together four or five times a year to give concerts, usually for charity.

This weekend they will perform a choral concert entitled From Lent to Easter at Our Lady and St Michael's, with all proceeds from the ticket sales going to the church.

The concert begins at 7pm and tickets are £7, available to reserve or on the door. For more details call 07484100884.
