The Tweedsmuir Camp Exhibition is the first permanent display that outlines the history of a group of Polish people who, immediately after WWII, were disinclined to return to Poland because of a post-war communist regime. The exhibition is about a group of Polish individuals who, as part of a larger cohort, decided instead to settle in the county of Surrey, Great Britain.
The Rural Life Centre will accept donations for the up-keep of the Tweedsmuir Camp Exhibition. You can donate at the museum bookshop, where staff will be glad to help, or by other suitable means.
You may also like to contribute to the exhibition by providing artefacts to expand the collection. The Surrey History Centre (SHC) is prepared to archive documents you may like to contribute. If you feel unable to let go of the originals, archivists at the SHC will accept copies of your documents. If you are interested, please contact us through the Rural Life Centre.
