'Seventeen acres of Poland' at Penrhos, near Pwllheli

A charity dedicated to helping a Polish care home "village" in north Wales will host its last ever carol concert later.

The Friends of Penrhos Polish Home have raised £180,000 since forming 18 years ago, but say an ageing membership means it is time to call it a day.

The home at Penrhos, near Pwllheli in Gwynedd, was founded in 1949 on a former RAF base to help exiled Polish war veterans.

BBC Wales visited the site in 1965, when it was still home to war veterans and their wives.
