Hilda Cashmore

The unveiling of a blue plaque to Hilda Cashmore quaker, feminist, educator and social worker and the first warden of Bristol’s Barton Hill Settlement will take place at 12.00 noon on International Women’s Day, Wednesday, 8th March 2023 at Wellspring Settlement, 43 Ducie Road, Barton Hill BS5 OAX.

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) along with Anne Joslin, director at Wellspring (the successor settlement to Barton Hill), will give a talk on Hilda’s role in Bristol as well as in the settlement movement in both Manchester and India where she later worked.
