Didn't Sandgate + Folkestone look nice on TV last night?

FG ≫ 2006 ≫ Didn't Sandgate + Folkestone look nice on TV last night?

You'd not have known they went to Folkestone harbour, but Sandgate is all part of our Kentish happy family, being just a short stroll down the hill.

Nice to see The Clarendon get a little look in, that 2000 a month the staff were spending over the bar in the Sandgate Hotel would go a bit further there I'd have thought, it's a great pub, though also possibly in the process of changing hands... Not been there for weeks, so if it's closed in the meantime, someone let me know.

The hotel came across pretty well I thought, not the management of it, but the way they improved so drastically. So now it's been bought has it? Anyone know? Someone phone them up and find out and report back!

This is my site The FG that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first moved to Folkestone 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 + voting for favourite places + things, and I hear it was a useful resource for others 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 about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, the name comes from the name of a pretend 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 GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
