Further to my earlier comments about Starbucks, today's Herald has it that the store won't be opening until July now... do you think we put them off with the comments here? It also says in the paper that the store opposite Debenhams is the front runner for the location, hmm, Ciro Citterio? That's the second time something's appeared here first, it's nice to know that the good people of Folkestone are reading!
This is part of my site The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar + voting for favourite venues + things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were 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 now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend paper 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 anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
