Has there been a fire? And did Gate 28 reopen? We were not in that part of town all weekend.

Here is video of a fire in Escondido:

That's Escondido, California though, not our favourite local restaurant. Yes, still my favourite, went to Sandbanks this weekend but I'd definitely still choose Escondido, even if just for the better vege choice.

Here is Fire in Cairo:

💬 Escondido Sandgate / Folkestone closed until further notice :-(

This is my site The FG that I set up in a fury of excitement when we first moved to Folkestone sometime in 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while before that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site used to be updated more frequently with a gig calendar + voting for favourite places + things, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving here. Now Iʼve moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesnʼt get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from the name of a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great arenʼt they? Do contact me if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
