FG ≫ 2011 ≫ Charity quiz at Googies this Friday (April 1st)

Dear ATU Supporter,

You are invited to attend a fundraising event for a Portacabin for season 2 of the East Cliff Roman Villa excavation to be held this Friday 1st April from 7pm at Googies Art Cafe, 15 Rendevous Street, Folkestone CT20 1EY. There will be a quiz and raffle prizes to be won!



Portacabin for East Cliff excavation site

Though last year's excavations were very successful, with over 200 volunteers taking part and about 2,500 visitors, it has been felt that more shelter would enhance the experience for everyone involved. Last year a gazebo and tent were used for a short time but proved inadequate on such an exposed site as well as of course being insecure and so not suitable for overnight storage. It is therefore considered that a portable building would be more suitable and amongst other uses, would provide a space for visitors to look at finds and printed material and find out more about the site.

This is part of my site The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I 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 Down From Londons you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar + voting for favourite venues + things, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a fake paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + 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 contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
