Over to you, discussion about something local, but Please be thoughtful... Folkestone on TV, Kent gigs, Find a flatmate, rent a room, property queries, current affairs, what's new, local events, for sale, local services, what I like about Folkestone, ask a question, offer advice, plug yourself... the more it's used the more useful a resource it will become. If you want a gig listed click here to add it (fixed now!), or just click here to post a message...

As it goes there are no pubbing / venues regarding holidayextras anyway. Enjoy the blog posts though.Is there something I have missed? Please do give me a shout!
