For millennia humankind has migrated around the globe seeking pastures new. However, in more recent history, this quest has become more urgent mainly due to economic pressures, or being displaced by warfare and unrest, along with fleeing from persecution, and some moving for family reunification, but each soul is seeking, with a head full of dreams, a safe haven. Records tell us, Southampton has been for many such people, a first or last port of call, all searching for new beginnings.
