Peace award stresses local alongside global
That was the message sent out yesterday by the Festival of Spirituality and Peace, the Edinburgh Inter-Faith Association and Edinburgh City Council in giving the second Edinburgh Peace Award to retired local head teacher David Fleming - who is pictured here on the right, along with Councillor Melanie Main.
Raymond Baudon, chair of the Board for the Festival of Spirituality and Peace, commented: "As last year was an international recipient we were wanting to honour a local recipient his year. The award is in its early years, but is an important way to honour others who share our vision of a peaceful world and who do extraordinary things to achieve that. We were delighted to honour David Fleming last night."
