Dear friends,

I have just joined this forum in hope to find out more about the Polish Community residing in the UK.

I am based in Leicester, which is a greatly diverse city, with residents of all nationalities and ethnicity. As you may know, the Polish Community here is growing rapidly and I would like to do my part to help the process of integration.

I, myself, am British, however, my parents migrated to the UK almost thirty years ago. I believe that integration brings together communities, regardless of colour, background, ability, gender, age etc.

I am trying to do some market research and also trying to find out a little bit more about our vast Polish community, within the UK, which has proven to be a great asset to Great Britain.

If you have a few minutes spare, I would appreciate if you can take part in a small survey. The survey questions are listed below.

Feel free to PM me your replies, or just post them as replies to this thread. If you do no wish to anser any questions, just leave them out.

Thank you very much for your time and effort. Your feedback is much appreciated!

Kind regards,

RLEXL.

Please answer the following questions to the best of your ability.

1. Which city do you live in?

2. Where do you mostly shop for products from your own country?

3. Do you watch TV from your own country? If yes, which service do you use? e.g. POLSAT/VIASAT. Which channel do you mostly watch?

4. Do you listen to any EU radios in the UK? Please list.

5. Do you use Facebook? Do you use any other social website which is specific to your country, for example, Draugiem.lv, NaszaKlasa.pl . Do you take part in any discussion forums? Please list.

6. Are you a member of any other online forums? If yes, please list.

7. Can you buy your local newspapers or magazines in England? If yes, what do you read and where do you purchase it from?

8. Are you a member of a community center or social club? If yes, please list.

9. Which community events do you usually take part in?

Thank you very much for your time.

Currently I don`t reside in the UK but I can answer as if I did.

Is it OK?

Well, having been born in Britain and self-identifying as both British and Polish, my answers might not be representative.

1. Which city do you live in?
London

2. Where do you mostly shop for products from your own country?
I don't. I can find everything I need in Tesco or ASDA.

3. Do you watch TV from your own country? If yes, which service do you use? e.g. POLSAT/VIASAT. Which channel do you mostly watch?

I watch Polish TV when I'm in Poland. It's just as bad as everywhere else, but with three times as many ads.

4. Do you listen to any EU radios in the UK? Please list.
No.

5. Do you use Facebook? Do you use any other social website which is specific to your country, for example, Draugiem.lv, NaszaKlasa.pl . Do you take part in any discussion forums? Please list.

I use Facebook.

6. Are you a member of any other online forums? If yes, please list.
I've been a member of too many forums to remember.

7. Can you buy your local newspapers or magazines in England? If yes, what do you read and where do you purchase it from?
I haven't purchased a newspaper ever since I've been able to read anything I want online for free.

8. Are you a member of a community center or social club? If yes, please list.
No.

9. Which community events do you usually take part in?
None.
