Wrexham Museum’s current exhibition on the history of the Polish Hospital in Penley has attracted a lot of interest!
The hospital was the center of a unique Polish community that flourished in the village for many years after it first opened in 1946.
Since the exhibition opened, many people have visited the museum to share their own fond memories and stories of the hospital community from years gone by.
A party for the Penley Poles
To celebrate this, a special event is being planned at the museum to reunite the ‘Penley Poles’, their families and members of the Polish Hospital community.
If you know anyone who might be interested in coming along then please do let them know! We’d love to see as many people as possible attending to share their stories and maybe meet some old friends!
It will also be a chance to see some of the wonderful items which were salvaged from the hospital and are now on display as part of the exhibition.
