Long closed bar The Usual Suspects seems to be in the process of renovation / conversion at last:
We do need more good pubs in that area, The Creative Quarter does need a fine landmark defining local, but I'm not convinced that's what it'll become, if it reopens as licensed premises again at all... That whole Old High Street regeneration still does seem a bit slow.
How long before that frontage is defaced with some bad graffiti?
This is my website The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when we first came to Folkestone in approximately 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 venues and things, and I hear it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving to the area. 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 becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. 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 great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
