Alicia Markiewicz, 29, had long harboured an ambition to be a physiotherapist. But after failing her finals in Poland, she decided to take a break to think things through. When the opportunity arose to come to the UK last year, she came to stay in Trowbridge, where she knew some fellow Poles. Following a chance meeting with Maciey Polczynski, she was offered the position of co-manager of The Polish Deli where she says she plans to stay for the forseeable future.
