Jars of sweets which are thought to be at least 45 years old have been discovered at a bus station in Folkestone, says the BBC... they're being shipped off to a museum in Battle, Sussex - why could they not be kept in Folkestone somewhere?
Will we get more discoveries like this, now the whole town centre is to be ripped up? Went walking through the car park area intended for the new shopping centre the other day, and I think I'll go back to snap some pictures before some of the old buildings are knocked beyond recognition.
This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were 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 now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend paper 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 get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
