Passengers were given a festive treat earlier this month at Huntingdon railway station.

Huntingdon Male Voice Choir took to the station’s platform to spread some Christmas cheer through some well known carols.

Jon Lane, chairman of the choir, said: “It was great to sing at the station, even though there were some train delays people enjoyed us being there. This is something we have done for many years.”

During the concert the choir was joined by members of a special choir that the group formed for its charity Magpas performance.

“We were joined by some singers from the brand new choir Sing2Help. We asked people who wanted to sing for charity and in the end we had 38 people that wanted to be a part of the choir,” added Mr Lane.
