Polish Heritage in the East Midlands

In September 2013 The Signpost to Polish Success begins the realisation of the cultural heritage project - Polish Heritage in the East Midlands.

The project aims to gather the memories of Polish people who settle in the UK as a result of various immigrant waves.

They want to encourage people to participate in the project who:

  • Would like to share their memories and experiences of settling in the UK
  • Possess interesting documents and memorable items, relating to their first years in the UK, which they would like to share them with the local community or pass on to local archives in Nottingham or Leicester through theNottingham based charity
  • Would like to create an exhibition showcasing their memories and memorable items. The exhibition will take place in March/April 2014 in Nottingham City Library.
  • Have the time and desire to participate in workshops for adults and young people during which they can discuss the question of the Polish heritage in the East Midlands during especially arranged meetings at local schools and museums.

The charity invites all people interested in the project to a choice of meetings on Wednesday 4 September at 12noon or 6pm or Thursday 5 September at 12pm or 6pm at The Signpost to Polish Success, Tennyson, Unit B, Forest Road West, Radford, Nottingham, NG7 4EP.
