FORMER members of a jazz band are being invited to a re-union in March.

Leadgate Spartans, which attracted members from across north-west Durham in the 1970s, played at fairs, carnivals and competitions throughout the North-East until it disbanded in 1998.

The reunion, at Leadgate Social Club, will include a buffet and a display of old photographs of the band.

It is being staged at the club, in St Ives Road, Leadgate, on Thursday, March 13, starting at 8pm.

Tickets costing £1 are available from Yvonne, at Salon 19 in Watling Street, Leadgate, or from David Overall, on (01207) 581476.
