On 25 January 2012 the Berkshire Asbestos Support Group celebrated the new year with an afternoon tea at The Forbury Hotel in Reading. The event was well attended and provided a great chance for our members to catch up and discuss BASG in 2012.
It was an enjoyable afternoon and we would like to thank everyone who came.

Asbestos was often used in Hospitals as an insulation material.
Welcome to the Berkshire Asbestos Support Group’s Tumblr blog.
The Berkshire Asbestos Support Group (BASG) is dedicated to providing support and advice for local sufferers of asbestos related illnesses and their families.
We hope to use this blog to raise awareness about the dangers of asbestos and provide a source of information for those who have been affected. The blog will highlight news articles, photos, other blogs and useful information.
