Sir Elton could soon have a permanent presence in Northwood Hills, according to the Uxbridge Gazette.


Hillingdon Council is exploring the possibility of putting a bronze statue of the pop legend who grew up in the area outside the Tube station.

It is hoped the 66-year-old can be honoured as part of the Northwood Hills regeneration project.

Elton is probably the most well-known and successful individual to come out of the area, and many local people are proud of his link with their community.

The councils idea is still in the planning stages, and it is seeking permission from the composer before work can commence on the statue.

EJW readers will recall that in 2010, a heritage plaque honouring the star was unveiled at the Namaste Lounge, the former Northwood Hills Hotel (where a young Reg Dwight played his first gigs).
