    Visiting Manchester and Liverpool, Dr Rzegocki met with local authorities and spoke with the Polish community about their expectations, hopes, and worries ahead of the upcoming Brexit negotiations.

     

    The Ambassador listened to representatives of the Polish diaspora in Manchester on Thursday evening and in Liverpool on Friday afternoon. During his visit to the Consulate General in Manchester, Dr Rzegocki confered state honours on war veterans who settled in North England after 1945.

     

    On Friday, at the University of Manchester, together with the President and Vice-Chancellor of The University of Manchester Prof Dame Nancy Rothwell, Dr Rzegocki helped launch the Multilingual Manchester initiative supporting community languages in Greater Manchester. The university-led project will involve Polish Saturday Schools from the area.

     

    The Ambassador met also with the Lord Mayor of Manchester Cllr Carl Austin-Behan and Deputy Leader of the Council Cllr Bernard Priest to discuss the contribution of the Polish community in Greater Manchester and in the region.

     

    Later that day, Dr Rzegocki travelled to Liverpool to meet the Mayor Joe Anderson and Lord Mayor Cllr Roz Gladden. The Ambassador also visited the Edward Krasiński exhibition at the Tate, showcasing works of one of Poland’s most accomplished contemporary artists.
