This is my site The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for best venues and stuff, 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 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 just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, the name comes from 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 great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
