From Ian Jenkins
Just thought I would confirm that I was one of the three children makeing asbestos snowballs at the mill site in 1972. I was 12 at the time. Furthermore we also took our toy trucks to play in the white sand until a grown up told us to clear off.
From John Thomas
Have you suffered any ill effects from your exposure to the asbestos?
