Fromelles – Inspiring and Hospitable

For my first few days I stayed with Monique and Gerard.  They were so kind to me and I felt very much at home.  Monique is the author of her own book on Fromelles and I was inspired by 2 of her pictures for my first pieces I will make in Fromelles.


Monique is also an excellent cook and I tried different breads and cheeses, Hare Casserole and was spoilt with her cooking.

Gerard speaks English very well and was so helpful translating.  He has a good knowledge of Fromelles and took me to see some of the monuments, giving me background on the battle and important aspects of the history of Fromelles.  With this knowledge I can add depth and interpretation to my ceramic pieces.


I also found out they have good beer here in Fromelles.  My favourite is a Belgium Beer called Troll.  and when they serve beer the glasses match.  Gerard even drove me all the way to Belgium to purchase a special glass to take home.

Thank you to Monique and Gerard for making my first days in Fromelles so inspiring and comfortable.
