Dunvant RFC Singers to perform at St Mary's Church Pembroke Dock
11:20am Sunday 20th July 2014 in News
A former Pembroke Dock boy is today bringing his choir back to the village where his mother was born in 1910.
David Vaughan’s mother, the youngest of 13 children and a churchgoer, was born on South Studdock Farm, and attended Angle School.
More than a century later, David and his choir, the Dunvant RFC Singers, will perform at St Mary's Church today, Sunday, July 20 at 7pm.
Appearing alongside the singers will be Jonathan Lycett, a well-known tenor in the musical world of south Wales.
The 77-year-old grandfather attended East End Junior School and Coronation School where he passed the then 11-plus before the family moved to Swansea in 1948.
During their time in Pembrokeshire the family lived at Llanreath and on a farm at St Daniels Hill, later renting a house on Gwyther Street which they later bought for £25.
“Mind you this was just after a landmine had fallen on Lower Gwyther Street and Laws Street,” said David who lives in Swansea with his wife, Glenys.
“I have had a calling back to Angle since I visited my uncle and aunty, the late Harry and Florie Thomas, in Angle,” he said.
David will perform alongside former Pennar man John Phillips. For more information on the concert call David on 01792 205078.
