Dave the Dolphin has been in touch again, firstly with a full filming schedule from the BBC (their Inside Out TV programme will be filming a Folkestone Dolphin special), and local people really ought to be involved... The plan is:
They surely didn't mean to send the whole filming schedule to everyone, but it's interesting to see that they can afford to stay at the Sandgate Hotel on our license payers money... It's a bit of a walk from the Sandgate Hotel to the harbour isn't it?

This is my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of enthusiasm when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a useful reference for others who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just 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 always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend 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 GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
