Here's what Labour say they've done for Folkestone1, here's Shepway Conservatives2, and here's Peter Carroll3 of the Lib Dems4. Last, but most closely allied to my own beliefs The Greens5. The candidate is Hazel Dawe, and the mayor recently defected their way from the Lib Dems4. Also standing are Petrina Holdsworth of the UKIP and Rodney Hylton-Potts, the independent TV game show winner.
This is my site The Folkestone Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when we first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I had been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for best venues + things, and I know it was a useful resource for those 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 love 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 newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
