A 41-year-old man who has been questioned in connection with a murder in Folkestone is now in a secure hospital. The man, from Folkestone, was arrested last Friday. Yesterday he was sectioned under the Mental Health Act... Read all about it, London Street is here.
This is my site The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons 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 others who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper 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 the twitter.
