 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'.

Dr Andrew Meeson Kielanowski

It is with great sadness that we report the death of our friend and colleague Dr Andrew Meeson Kielanowski,
co-founder and Vice Chairman of the Polish Heritage Society (UK). A much-loved and widely-respected doctor in
Hampstead, he was also a great philanthropist active in numerous charities. As Chairman of the Polish Knights of Malta (UK),
he was a tireless fund-raiser for oncology clinics in Poland. He also played a leading role in the successful campaign
for a Polish Armed Forces memorial to be erected at the National Arboretum.

We send our condolences to his family.

The funeral will take place on Friday 27th January at
St Mary’s Church, Holly Place, Hampstead, London NW3 6QU
