LOXWOOD jazz enthusiasts will remember Alvin Stardust at their Jazz and Blues Club meeting at the village hall next Thursday, December 11.
Organiser Peter Winney said: “He was a very good friend to our village and the club has suffered a grievous loss.
“Our hearts go out to his widow Julie as she struggles through these first very difficult days after her tragic loss.”
And trooper that she is, Julie will be performing at the club’s Christmas special on Thursday.
“Obviously we will be remembering Alvin, but it will not be doom and gloom – he wouldn’t want that.”
The bar will be open as usual with real ale, lager, cider, wine and soft drinks.
Tickets are available from Anita on 01403 752954 or from the Loxwood post 0ffice.
