Does Folkestone really need any more apartments? I know it has lots of pubs and they're all empty, but that's because there are almost none that are worth going to.

I heard somewhere, perhaps on the councillor's own blog that he lived there, and that he'd lived there as a child (if I'm thinking of the right person) but I didn't know he was the landlord / tenant. Also, I didn't know that Euphoria was meant to be a gay bar, I usually avoid those pre-club type places. Haven't been in there at all since it's been the Three Mackeral I don't think, though I think we got as far as the front door in each of its last three or four incarnations and just thought "no thanks" and gone somewhere else.

We had a drink outside there once in the daytime when it was Euphoria, when the sun is shining it's a nice spot, but the last time I really liked it was when it was called The Front, though I don't think that survived long either did it?

Which previous landlord are you then? Or are you the landlord of a neighbouring rival tavern? They're all pretty ropey down there.

This is my site The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only 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 always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a fake 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 great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
