The Finale! Petersfield - Portsmouth - Southampton
Saturday 4th July
Our last day.
We thought there were no hills 'down south' but managed to find a few little breathtaking inclines on our last day on the backroads to Portsmouth then on to Southhampton.
Many thanks to all at HASAG for their wonderful welcome to Southampton to end our Breathtaking Journey.
This isn't the end of our blog. It remains very much a "work in progress" with additions and edits to the previous daily posts.
Thank you to everyone that has helped and been involved in a truly memorable and Breathtaking Journey.
We must never forget those who have died as a result of asbestos- all were preventable deaths.
We must ensure that future generations are kept safe from this cruel and deadly mineral.
And that current generations can get justice and access to medical treatment that they deserve. Their work contributed so much to our economy yet they have paid the ultimate price with their health.
On the first day of our journey we saw a banner with a simple message:
JUSTICE AND TRUTH.
The facts about asbestos are truly breathtaking. So are the brave people and communities we have visited.
Our journey has not finished.
