This article on thepublican.com says TV chef Phil Vickery is from Folkestone, and this BBC profile confirms it! He's not to be confused with the rugby player, he is a cooker, not a fighter.

Interesting feature anyway, about Shepherds Neame. "The company makes a feature of sourcing as many of its food ingredients as it can from local suppliers", we like that...

This is my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I had been a frequent visitor for a while before 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 places and things, + I know it was a useful reference for others who were 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 Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a fake paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + 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 Twitter.
