Huge congratulations to Gosia McKane for her wonderful award

I was sent this press release a day or so ago, what wonderful news for Gosia and her team.
I asked for a photograph, and here it is.
Kensington and Fairfield Councillors have always been delighted to work with Merseyside Polonia and of course with the lovely Gosia who works so hard to promote good relations between Liverpool people and their new Polish neighbours. 
 Merseyside Polonia Team would like to congratulate the Founder of the organisation Gosia McKane on being awarded a Polish Civil State Award: Silver Cross of Merit by the President of the Republic of Poland Mr. Bronislaw Komorowski.

At last night's event celebrating Polish Independence Day, Gosia received the Order from the Consul General of the Republic of Poland in Manchester Mr. Lukasz Lutostanski for her work with the Polish Community in Liverpool.

"I would like to thank Mr. President for such honor" - Gosia McKane said after being decorated - "and it's a great privilege to receive it in the presence of so many great war heroes. I'm very happy that the work we do with Merseyside Polonia has been recognised and I accept it on behalf of the whole Merseyside Polonia team."

Merseyside Polonia is a Charitable organisation developing positive relations between the Polish Community and local residents. Started in 2008 as a Project to help the new Polish arrivals to Liverpool as well as raise awareness among the local community. 

It's a great news for Merseyside Polonia, Polish Community and Liverpool!
