Dumfries’Polish community will gather to mark a special day in their nation’s history on Sunday.
November 11 marks 100 years since the country regained its independence in the aftermath of World War One.
Around 30 members of the Polish community are expected to attend a programme of events beginning with a mass at St Teresa’s RC Church at 2.15pm to remember the nation’s war heroes.
That will be followed by a service at St Andrew’s Cemetery at 3.30pm in memory of a group of Polish air force pilots who are buried there.
And the day will conclude with a ceremonial dinner at the Steam Boat Inn in Carsethorn.
Organiser Wojciech Kopanicki said: “It’s a really spontaneous event, but we wanted to have a little celebration marking the centenary.
“As a Polish community living in Dumfries and the surrounding areas we would like to thank our Scottish friends for the warm welcome we’ve had to this area.”
