A special morning tea was held at the ACV/GARDS office on the 22nd November, where members and the general public were invited to come along and learn so much more about asbestos in the community. On hand to stimulate conversation were samples containing asbestos such as necklaces, earrings, crayons, children’s science kits, building materials such as brick cladding, asbestos fibre samples, sealant, brakes, pot stands, gaskets and so much more. In attendance were hygienists, asbestos litigation lawyers and local council employees for the general public to ask those questions they have always wanted to know and never got around to asking.
All who attended enjoyed the chat and banter along with the scones jam and cream – tea and coffee. It was a very enjoyable morning with much information sharing. All who attended said that the morning had been insightful and enjoyable. Thank you to all who came along and made the morning such a success. Below are some of those who attended.
