Citizen editor: The Polish community add to the rich tapestry of the city and county
GO into many a convenience store in Gloucester today and next to the cans of Spam and the baked beans, there can be all manner of tins and jars of eastern European food on the shelves.
Our city's traders cater for their market and there are now many members of the Polish community who have settled here.
Elzbieta Pawlowska is one such person who dreamed of moving to England and now she lives in a 'beautiful city' and adds to its economy by the work she does running a language school.
The city is a great melting pot of cultures and it is right that the Polish community are proud of their language and heritage, but it is also good to see so many embracing the culture on offer here in the county adding to its rich tapestry.

WELL, Billy Twelvetrees certainly showed England, and indeed Scotland, fans what he was made of this weekend.
What a fantastic performance by the Gloucester centre in the Six Nations game.
Heaven knows Cherry and Whites fans needed a lift after the woeful performance at Kingsholm earlier in the day.
THE Citizen would like to apologise to Gloucester MP Richard Graham for inaccuracies in the front page article on January 24 headlined 'MP claims high heels risk rape'.
We recognise that Mr Graham did not say, as incorrectly stated in the article, that he agreed with Joanna Lumley's controversial remarks about clothes and rape. Nor did he use the word rape in the interview.
We recognise Mr Graham's position was to give his views on risk awareness and not to excuse rape under any circumstances. We apologise for any distress caused.
