We are keen to contact individuals living in Norfolk who have family connections with Poland or an affinity with that country to help us explore and record stories behind the important contribution that Poles have made to this county since World War II or earlier.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation and we look forward to hearing from some of your members or people they might know in the near future.

Annette Carson is an award-winning author who lives in Horstead, Norfolk, and has sold over 50,000 non-fiction books on subjects including aviation, music and history. Since 2008 she has been researching and writing about King Richard III and is best known for her book Richard III: The Maligned King which relies exclusively on primary historical sources.
In 2011 she was invited to join the Looking For Richard Project, to search for the burial place of Richard III, based on her assertion in this book – which turned out to be correct – that Richard’s grave was probably to be found underneath the Social Services Car Park in Leicester. Since then she has published three more Richard III books and gives talks about the controversial king. She’s had particular success with a little book entitled Richard III: A Small Guide to the Great Debate, which explains to the general reader what the controversy is all about.
Her talk on August 16 is about how it’s possible to find the real Richard III if you set aside the propaganda that gave him a black reputation.
