⬆️Vanished businesses

Feltonfleet moved to Cobham, Surrey after moving from Folkestone and pupils were evacuated during the war to Perrott Hill in Crewkerne, Somerset. After the war, the school moved back to the existing site in Surrey and is very much thriving now as a co-educational prep school for pupils between the ages of 3 and 13. The School has an active Former Pupils Association and if you would like further details, do please email the school and they can forward your details to Peter Colbourne-Baber who heads the FPA and as a former pupil himself has also done a great deal of research into the history of the school, which recently celebrated its centenary. The school website provides lots of information about the school and we welcome visits from former pupils.

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of enthusiasm when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site used to be updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for best venues and things, + I know it was a handy resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from the name of a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye 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 contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
