A CELEBRATION of Polish culture was held at the Barnardo’s-run Sunny Fields Children’s Centre in Charford.
The event, supported by Bromsgrove District Council, was aimed at promoting awareness of the history of Polish immigrants, over the last 100 years.
It was also aimed at encouraging an understanding and empathy for different cultures within society.
Bromsgrove District Council’s civic head Coun Janice Boswell attended the event, which included traditional stories, face painting and craft activities.
There were also items on display from the Polish school in Redditch and the first showing in Bromsgrove of the exhibition ‘From exile to freedom’ from the Birmingham Expats association.
Coun Boswell said: “Communities are changing and this kind of event is a way of ensuring the feeling of community is maintained for all.
“We all bring something different, but we all also have the same need to feel we belong.”
