As you may or may not know, Strange Cargo are collecting residents' memories of Folkestone for a book they are putting together. In support of this and because the deadline for entries is fast approaching we thought we would send this message to spread the word and to ask you to contribute if you can. about the project can be found here.
You just need to write a few lines on your memories, 'quirky knowledge' etc on a site, place or object in Folkestone. You can either phone 01303 244533 or send an email to email@example.com.
This is part of my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and stuff, and I hear it was a useful reference for others who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
