Hmm Folkestone B&Q is closing in January, something big will be able to take its place on the Park Farm estate. Debenhams was also rumoured to be closing then, so what could fill the place of Debenhams and B&Q? Where is the cross over between DIY ethic and soft furnishings...? IKEA! Come on IKEA, come to Folkestone, it's lovely!
Loads of bargains to be had at B&Q because of the closure I think, I will have to get up there.
This is my site The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved to Folkestone sometime in 2004. I'd been a regular visitor for a while previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I hear it was a useful reference for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from the name of a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye 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 contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
