St Pancras to open in 2007

According to this Article in The Times...

The three additional platforms to the east are reserved for new fast trains from east Kent which will use the new Channel Tunnel Rail Link line and cut commuter train times by up to two thirds...

Fingers cross that our bit's open then too, thinking more and more about commuting in. If the three grand plus for the travelcard out to that zone isn't frightening enough, the current long commute is.

I don't think Folkestone did that well this Christmas - the Christmas quiz at Chambers was fabulous, but why did the New Years Eve bash not sell enough tickets? Got to buy tickets in advance everyone, we did, but we were not enough... also event organisers, got to get your promotion properly out there, and out there a bit in advance too. We saw almost no advertising for the event, and what we did was a bit small scale. thegigguide.info is still being advertised within Chambers, but it had no info about what was going on over xmas. Get it together everyone!

We ended up at La Vue, and it was disappointing. Not my bag at all in terms of music (though we knew that in advance), and too quiet. IMHO not worth the 15 quid admission.

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a frenzy of excitement when we first moved to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I had 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 + things, + 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 the name of a fake paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
