POLISH children living in Redditch learned more about the traditions of their ancestors at a special event to mark International Women’s Day.

Youngsters attended a Polish School event at Church Hill Community Centre on Saturday (March 8) where they were told about the celebrations held annually in the country.

Each woman would receive a carnation and a pair of tights until the political system changed in 1993. Now the day is still widely celebrated but women receive bouquets of tulips instead.

Coun Pattie Hill, who attended the event, said: “It was really lovely to see the traditions taught through song and dance, the adults explained they loved living her in Redditch but did not want their children to forget their traditions.”
