A beautiful mural depicting Bristol's world-famous skyline has been painted at a local children's hospice.

The artist, Damien Jeffery, recreated the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge, complete with the hot air balloons synonymous with the city.

It can be found on the wall in the entrance foyer of Children’s Hospice South West’s Charlton Farm.

His colourful artwork forms a vivid backdrop for a replica of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the car popularised by a film starring Dick Van Dyke.

The memorable vehicle was meticulously crafted by Kevin Edge, a retired kitchen fitter from Lympstone, during the quarantine period to occupy his time.

Constructed in his workshop, he utilised various materials, including everyday household items such as a thermal flask and a toilet brush holder.

The artist, a Clevedon local and father of one, first outlined his mural on computer, after which he materialised the 20ft by 8ft design onto the wall using a water-based emulsion.

He had previously rendered a notable train mural in Clevedon’s Queens Square.

Damien Jeffery said: "The design for the mural went backwards and forwards a few times, but I wanted it to have a relationship with the car and the local area.

"The wall in the entrance to the foyer is a lovely space and I wanted to paint something colourful and playful.

"The suspension bridge and the balloons are very much part of Bristol and I hope the design makes the whole area more immersive for the children."
