how is life in manchester for Polish people?

I'm a feature writer at the Manchester Evening News, starting to research a piece about the influx of Polish workers to Manchester and the north west, and what this has meant for the area

I'd be really interested to hear from anyone who has come from Poland in recent years and settled in Greater Manchester or Cheshire.
Can you tell me what brought you here? What work you have found, and how does it compare with the opportunities you had back in Poland? Are you well treated at work? Have the local people been welcoming? Have you managed to keep alive your links with your homeland (little things like getting Polish food, enjoying the company of other people from Poland)? Do you now regard the UK as "home" or do you see yourself returning to Poland one day?

Most important of all, what do you like about life here..and what don't you like?

Hope you can help. Please e mail me direct at
