My recent visit

I recently visited my old home town for a funeral, and would just like to comment that I am still so happy to see Shepherd & Neame ales in Folkestone. The first thing my son and I did when arriving at Folkestone West station, was to have a "swift half" in the Nailbox.

One other comment, there's a pub down the fish market. It used to be the Oddfellows, then Euphoria, now the Three Mackerels. What's going on there?

This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy reference for others who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from a fake newspaper 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 contact me if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
