In this issue we are publishing the results of the research recently carried out with Poles in the North East. It seems that we get most of our information about living and working in the UK from friends. We wanted to come here for better job opportunities, but we still work below our qualification levels. The group that has been interviewed mainly consists of people aged 25-39 years. (‘Migrants and Mobility’, p.31). This issue also includes research results about some of the eating habits we have brought with us from Poland. It appears that we find food more expensive here, and the shops do not sell everything we want. In fact, given a choice us Poles would be happy eating only Polish food according to the research findings ( ‘You are what you eat’, p. 23).
