  9. Wadebridge sculptor creates statue of suffragette MP

    BBC Radio Cornwall

    A Cornish sculptor has created a statue of a prominent suffragette on the 100th anniversary of women first being given the right to vote in the UK.

    Richard Austin from Wadebridge was commissioned by Northampton Borough Council to design a 7ft (2m) sculpture of Margaret Bondfield, a Labour MP for Northampton who became the first female cabinet member as well as co-founding the first trade union for women.

    Statue of Margaret Bondfield

    Mr Austin says it is a great way to mark such an important figure.

    "Northampton Borough Council has been amazing," she said. "It's unprecedented in commissioning a sculptor to create seven life-size sculptures of important people from Northampton. She's the final one.

    "It's fantastic that she's such an important lady from Northampton and especially in this year of 100 years of women getting the vote."

    The sculpture joins six other famous Northampton figures commissioned by the council - Francis Crick, Lady Wantage, Edgar Mobbs, Walter Tull, John Clare and Malcolm Arnold.

    Margaret Bondfield's statue will be unveiled at Northampton Guildhall on 20 March.
