Polish Heritage Day

The red-and-white flag of Poland was proudly flying over two historic Horncastle buildings last weekend - The War Memorial Hospital in North Street and Stanhope Hall.

The flag flying was part of a weekend of events to mark Polish Heritage Day. Locally, it evoked memories of the many Polish servicemen who spent time in the Horncastle area during the Second World War.
