The Evening Standard1 has noticed Folkestone!

Plea over fast rail link 10 October 2004

Campaigners in Folkestone are urging railway bosses to introduce a fast rail link to London as early as possible.

Shepway District Council had expressed its concern to the Strategic Rail Authority at the loss of momentum since operator Connex lost the franchise.

The authority has said a new operator for the service will be appointed within the next few months.

I've not actually noticed any protesters, but RAH! London is starting to notice Folkestone!

This is my site The Folkestone Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came here sometime in 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues + things, and I hear it was a useful resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only 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 knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye 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 offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
