With our new gite, Fairbanks, which we rent out in the heart of the Somme battlefields we never expected to have stay a relative of William Fairbank. Fairbanks was named after William’s ancestor who planted fruit trees after the Great War in our village, Hardecourt Aux Bois. He was a doctor to the Royal family in Windsor. We are looking forward to welcoming the family again in the future.
