David Crozier, Nostalgia Editor for the Watford Observer, has told about a calendar which should appeal to Rocket Man fans.


He says, ”The paper is reprinting all 12 pictures from the 1978 Elton John calendar in Friday’s edition (cover date December 27th 2013) as a sort of retro 2014 calendar.”

The pictures were all taken in autumn 1977 and show Elton in various places around the town. It was originally made  to raise money for the Hornets.

David adds: ”There is still plenty of interest in him here. A couple of months or so ago I ran a story and picture about Elton opening the Watford Stadium station halt in 1982 and it received more than 4,000 hits online – which is twice what the column usually got at the time.”
Those who are unable to purchase the paper locally can contact Ellen Dean on 01923-216370. The cover price (not counting extra postage and handling fees) is 90p.
