Polish Evening
Saturday 28th June at 7.30pm

Traditional Three Course Meal & Live Music.
Polish Community Centre in Whitbourne Avenue

Organised By
The Rotary Club of Swindon Thamesdown
& the Swindon Polish Community
In conjunction with
The Rotary Club of Torun Poland and TASTE.

The event has been organised to raise money for School No 6 in Torun who are equipping an education room at the school to help children whose ages range from 6 to 21 years with their disabilities.

Tickets are available from the
The Polish Community Centre and
Rotarian Senior Vice President Bob Barrett

The Polish Day was enjoyable and a successful event with a good attendance of both Polish and other nationalities. The TASTE stand looked good and attracted a lot of interest. We collected details from people interested in a long weekend trip to Torun and those wanting to be notified of TASTE activities.

The majority of those on the long weekend trip list seem to favour Spring 2008.

November 2005 Trip by rubber-dragonrubber-dragon, 26 Sep 2007 19:32

I was also born in Swindon and if you are involved with the Polish Community here there is never a dull moment. We live like one big happy family and there is always something happening. Swindon was lacking in many things for a number of years and the architecture was dreadful, but things are improving now. We are in a good position, with Bath and Oxford and even London within easy reach. We have beautiful country side around us such as the Cotswolds and I am happy with my life here.

The Polish community in Swindon would like to invite everyone to our Polish Cultural Day on Saturday 6 October 2007 to be held at the Polish Community Centre, Whitbourne Avenue, Swindon.

W ramach współpracy miast partnerskich pragniemy przyjechać do Swindon, by nawiązać współpracę z organizacjami pozarządowymi i samorządem Swindon, aby w przyszłości realizować wspólny projekt dotyczący wymiany informacji i pomysłów w celu wzajemnego poznania obu miast, realizacji rozwiązywania problemów społecznych i budowania społeczeństwa obywatelskiego.
Nie muszą to być organizacje kobiet, ale takie, które sa u Was i mogą podzielić się z nami tym, co robią. Interesuje jak rozwiązujecie problemy społeczne a szczególnie problemy rodzin.

I was born in Swindon. Too many cars and roads and not enough community feel.

Swindon is a beautiful Town. Have anybody been there? What do you think about it?
