 A message from our President, General Lord Guthrie of Craigiebank

'I am delighted to be associated with the work of the Polish Heritage Society and very honoured to serve as its President. The Society's work highlights the enormous contribution which generations of Poles have made to their adopted country. Preserving and celebrating that heritage will only further strengthen the ties between Poland and the United Kingdom.

I worked closely with the Society on the project to build a memorial to the Polish Forces at the National Memorial Arboretum and saw at first hand the energy and dedication of those involved.

I encourage you to explore this website and learn about the many other projects the Society has sponsored. Do please contact us if you would like to be involved in any way'.

Goniec Polski covers the whole Chopin statue project story


Goniec Polski - The Polish TimesGoniec Polski in its 13th May 2011 edition published a very comprehensive article about the Polish Heritage Society UK’s - Chopin statue project, supporting our publicity campaign from the first day to the last.  Goniec, a weekly publication, covered the whole Chopin story in great detail from the very beginning to beyond its unveiling.  A highly interesting article can be in addition found on their web site: Goniec Polski.  This feature is squarely aimed at the Polish speaking UK community, covering the statue story and its unveiling, as well as a very interesting story of the latest Chopin discovery–an early daguerreotype photograph (the daguerreotype was the first commercially successful photographic process) of the composer on his death bed, attributed to the famous Louis-Auguste Bisson (1814–1876).  For full details see: Pośmiertne zdjęcie Chopina.
