The Polish Heritage Society
The Polish Heritage Society in the United Kingdom, in short PHS (UK), was formed to promote greater community awareness amongst present and future generations of United Kingdom citizens of Polish origin of the historical links between the two countries and the presence of acts of gratitude and remembrance across Great Britain.
To carry out its mission PHS works with other Polish groups, associations and societies in the common interest of the maintenance and protection of examples of Polish heritage in Great Britain acting as a constant reminder of why the Polish community is here.
Administration of PHS
The PHS is administered by the Honorary Secretary and the Honorary Treasurer.
The Honorary Secretary calls meetings, including the AGM, records the minutes, liaises with associations, groups and government departments and supports the Board of Directors in their various roles.
The Honorary Treasurer manages the society's finances, ensuring that full financial records are kept and that the appropriate authorities are informed at regular intervals.
A record is kept of particular contributions of volunteers and of all donors.
The society's main channel of communication is through its website.
