Marollen/Marolles is hip!

I’ve been living in the Marolles for 5 years, and it definitely looks like my neighbourhood is getting hip.

A photo book “Marollen/Marolles” has been created by Hans Roels and Kurt Deruyter, picturing groups of people from the Marolles: police officers, surgeons, construction workers and of course the Backgammon crowd in La Barrière. The book also tells the history of the Marolles. (The book, published by BooksInspired, is for sale in the FNAC.)

Take a look at their pictures here: Marollen/Marolles, the pictures.

This Saturday, they even organised a splendid diner for 800 people on the Place Jeu de Balle/Vossenplein. Great food, great weather, great people. Most of the people on the pictures were present, a lot of fellow-marolliens and of course the mayor Thielemans and Prince Laurent.
