Ex-chairman pays for bench & trees in memory of legendary former manager

Sir Elton's GT Bench Unveiled


A bench commissioned by Sir Elton John in memory of the late Graham Taylor was officially unveiled yesterday.

The bench - which has been paid for by former Watford chairman Sir Elton - can be found in Cassiobury Park and features a plaque containing the message:

"In loving memory of my friend Graham Taylor. Much loved. Elton. 15.09.44 - 12.01.17"

Graham's wife Rita was present at the unveiling, as well as their daughter Karen Colley, family friends and mayor Dorothy Thornhill.

Four magnolia trees have also been planted around the bench and dedicated to Graham, again paid for by Sir Elton.
