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'.

I am delighted to personally inform you that the Polish A-Level has been saved – and will continue being taught normally.
For your information, there was a recent meeting (22nd June) concerning this problem.
The Polish Education Minster, Joanna Kluzik-Rostkowska arrived in the UK and had a personal meeting with Nick Gibb, our Minister of State for Schools, with the Polish Ambassador (Witold Sobkow) being also present at the meeting.
We have subsequently been informed that Nick Gibb has decided that Polish A-Level will not be cancelled.
With Very Best Regards,
