Event description

Description

This new walk through Bermondsey celebrates the life and achievements of Ada Salter; socialist, pacifist, environmentalist, youth-worker and Quaker. Ada was the first female Mayor in London and the first Labour woman mayor in the British Isles. Ada loved singing and plants; with her husband, local doctor and MP Dr Alfred Salter, she made a significant impact on health, housing, employment and labour relations. The Garden Suburb she created and the tree planting she championed can still be seen today. This walk explores her achievements and the ethical socialism that underpinned them. We start at and finish close to Bermondsey Station. Further details on booking.
