Wonderful heart of flags for Syria on Chalford hillside

A giant heart has traveled from Cornwall to Stroud in show of solidarity for Syrian people and to raise money for Oxfam’s Crisis Appeal. Yesterday was Peace One Day (see last blog post) - well this heart was put together out of 2,000 flags. It was installed by Gloucestershire couple Jimmy Edmonds who is a filmmaker and photographer and his wife Jane Harris a counsellor and psychotherapist – with help from Caroline Cleave (who with Franca Westaway) was one of the two artists behind the idea.

In this film by Philip Booth you will meet Jimmy, Jane and Caroline and see something of the flag after it was installed in Chalford near Stroud. Plus a song from Jon Cleave of Fisherman’s Friends. See the film at:
