About this event

Ada Salter was the first female mayor in London and the first Labour woman mayor in the British Isles. With her husband, local doctor and MP Dr Alfred Salter, she made a significant impact on health, housing, employment and labour relations, helping to make Bermondsey world famous for its flowers and its Garden City estate, still occupied today. Her daughter Joyce, pictured above, lived and died with Ada. Find out about the legacy of the Salters on this charming riverside walk, which tells their story from the Bermondsey Uprising of women jam factory workers in 1911, to their years as pacifists in the First World War, and radical policies on public health.  We start at and finish close to Bermondsey Station.
