Reg Presley - Council Bosses Considering Where To Put Reg Presley Honour

Council leaders in Andover, England are still trying to figure out how best to honour the town's most famous son, Reg Presley, two months after the rocker's death.

The local hero passed away in February (13) and now officials are trying to find the best place to remember the Wild Thing singer.

Reports suggest his former school, rehearsal space and the house where he was born back in 1941 are being considered by town clerk Wendy Coulter.

Town council chairman David Drew tells the local newspaper Andover Advertiser, "I think it is something that we should do for someone known as Mr. Andover."

A planned plaque tribute to the late star won't be his only honour in his hometown - there's also a poetry trail featuring the lyrics of his hit The Troggs tune Love is All Around.

Presley's widow Brenda tells Wenn, "They haven't contacted us yet about a way to honour Reg but I won't be pushing for anything. If they want to pay tribute to him that's fine, but he is in my heart and I don't need a way of remembering him."
