How can Folkestone hope to clear up its image with this nasty market in town.? who buys this stuff? i cannot see the major retailers wanting to trade along side this lot... its all so down market. surely we dont want to encourage this type of market trading.
This is part of my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of enthusiasm when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I hear it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
