My recent visit

FG ≫ 2008 ≫ My recent visit

I recently visited my old home town for a funeral, and would just like to comment that I am still so happy to see Shepherd & Neame ales in Folkestone. The first thing my son and I did when arriving at Folkestone West station, was to have a "swift half" in the Nailbox.

One other comment, there's a pub down the fish market. It used to be the Oddfellows, then Euphoria, now the Three Mackerels. What's going on there?

💬 Is it still the Three Mackerel?

This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we 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 now. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for best venues and things, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention 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 BTW, this comes from a pretend newspaper 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 Twitter.
