These Print Competitions have ended our 2006/2007 season, with only our Annual Dinner and Awards Night to follow on 25th May.

The above winning photographs, scoring 20 points, can be seen on our website at

We are certainly doing well within the club we now have, among our members, A.R.P.S., L.R.P.S., C.P.A.G.B., and D.P.A.G.B. award and competition winners of acceptances and prizes, we are without a doubt among the top clubs in Kent now, not only for our members personal achievements but also as a club. We have won several Battles this season, including, the Eurotunnel Trophy against Deal, Gateway (Dover), and Canterbury, (where we tied with Gateway (Dover)), and at the Battle at Malling we tied 2nd with 10 clubs entering.

If you have ever come along to our club and, perhaps been disappointed with that particular evenings presentation, do please come along and try us again. We now have approximately 70 members and our club is very strong, as you can see from above. Unfortunately some potential new members come along and that actual evening may not be their cup-of-tea so they dont come again, which is a shame as we have so much to offer anyone who is interested in photography. Our programme covers many aspects of photography and we try to suit everyones taste and ability Our motto is We dont Teach, But You Learn. Our new season will commence on 3rd September, and the Programme will be on our website for viewing from August.

Our meetings are held at the St Georges Church, Audley Road, (on the corner of Shorncliffe Road opposite West Station) Folkestone on Mondays at 7.45pm. New members are always welcome, if interested please phone Mrs Jenny Barraclough (Press Officer) 01303 245399. E mail:

This is my website The Folkestone Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I 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 + voting for best venues and things, + I know it was a useful resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just 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 just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, 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 paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great 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.
