Renewed Interest In Elton's Hornet

March 8, 2001 16:18: THERE has been renewed interest in colleague Terry Challis' painting and poster, showing Sir Elton John astride a hornet, pointing the way to a brighter and more illustrious future.

The interest was sparked on the Watford Mailing List and we are trying to find out exactly how many would be interested.

If you havn't already done so, you can register your interest by clicking on the Classic Hornets Poster banner in the top left-hand corner of this site and completing the form.

The poster is priced £7, and a reproduction will appear on the website. It can also be seen in the Watford Centenary History book.

Painted by Terry, the original was presented to the rock star some years ago by Oliver Phillips on behalf of The Watford Observer. Sir Elton told Graham Taylor a little later: "That painting represents exactly what I want to do with Watford. It is spot on."
