The unveiling of a blue plaque to Hilda Cashmore, the first warden of Bristol’s Barton Hill Settlement, took place at noon on 8 March, 2023 (International Women’s Day).

A Quaker, feminist, social reformer and educator, whose work led to her election as the first woman president of the British Association of Residential Settlements, Cashmore was one of a number of influential women social reformers in early twentieth-century Bristol.

After the unveiling, Helen Meller, author of the BRHG book Hilda Cashmore, and Anne Joslin, of the Wellspring Settlement (the successor settlement to Barton Hill), gave talks on ¬†Hilda’s role in Bristol as well as in the wider settlement movement.
