Some details from this week's Herald about Gate 28

FG ≫ 2008 ≫ Some details from this week's Herald about Gate 28

According to the Folkestone Herald:

It's under new ownership because Roger DeHaan sold the freehold, hmm why would he do that? I wonder if it's because Jimmy Godden has been buying up properties on the same street.

The same owner owns the Gate Inn in Hythe and other pubs, he's pictured in the paper.

Along with the freehold of Gate 28 he's bought the shop next door, which will be expanded into as a restaurant. Wouldn't it have made sense to do that before opening? Expanding in to it now will involve moving the bar or having to shift that new plasma telly at least.

This is part of my site The '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 gig calendar and voting for favourite places + things, + I know it was a useful reference for others who were moving to the area. Now Iʼve moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesnʼt get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself 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 the name of a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great arenʼt they? Do get in touch if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
