On 28th and 29th October, Sainsbury's Folkestone town centre store is holding a Haunted Halloween weekend for their Local Charity of the Year Headway East Kent. The store will be transformed into a spectacular spooky supermarket with staff joining in the fun and paying 1 to dress up in their scariest outfits. There will be fun and games for everyone with all the proceeds going to Headway East Kent. Activities on offer will include freaky face painting, bobbing for apples, crazy colouring and trick or treat. You will be transported into a world of spooky characters and freaky events which are fun for all the family!
This is part of my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first came to Folkestone sometime in 2004. 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 gig calendar and voting for favourite places and things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were 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 always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend newspaper 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 get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
