Folkestonomy


Lost and found (nearly)

We recently received the email below from Andrea Lewis who found her brother on the Folkestonomy website. Unfotunately we could not help as not everyone left their contact details with us. But maybe - just maybe someone happens to see this who can help join the dots in which case please contact us here.
"Hi hope you can help me, i was looking through your tags, and found a photo of my brother, which i have not seen for 20yrs, he moved to folkestone many years ago. so i have been searching the internet for him, his name is Adrian Bowen, and i was put on to your site, after putting his name in the computer, he is my twin brother and we will be 50 next month, the tag was tken last june 08. I would be very happy if you had any details on him, if not thanks any way, i know he is well by looking at the picture, and he is still in folkestone, so thank you again my search goes on take care Andrea."


Fireworks


Wow what brilliant fireworks, World Famous certainly did a good job, fireworks and music all over the place, fireworks up at the castle and in the harbour and over the breakwater. I sneaked on the boat really easily, getting off the other end was quite simple noone in France has any idea what I am, they didn't even think to ask for my ticket.

Dover


I'm in Dover now, can you see the castle, it's great to be out in the sunshine again, I hear that they have got some fireworks on tonight I'm going to get on a boat when they are all watching the fireworks all those woooshings and bangs noone will notice me.

Away


I'm off I've had enough of this place I'm going to Dover and abroad, I've had my plugs changed to fit those European sockets and I'm off to see pastures anew.

I'm bored

All alone
All alone

I'm sitting in this shed of death, surrounded by bits of dead seagulls and old dusty safes, I've had enough with this dusty old tarpaulin on top of me, it's not even mine someone stole mine so the invigilators took this dusty one.......ah....well

hi

i have just been enjoying your website ... better late than never!!

i am on page 3 of the tags - came on the penultimate day

i took a photio of cables and shadows and would like to send it - sorry it is late - but thought it suited the site


what an adventure you had

i think the whole triennial was brill and am just so sorry i could not 

return for a second visit.  as it was, i had VERY short legs at the end

of the day!


but i picked a corker of a day at least - wall to wall sunshine which

enhanced all the artwork, the town, the visitors, participants etc.


THANK YOU!

Last journey.....

All lit up

Driving along past the old Rotunda

Going towards the harbour...can you see the lights?

Well we tried, it did look better in reality, and you can just see Olivia's hand again, still waving goodbye.  as we drove along we found the truck so she came along behind us, we drove up past the Visitor Centre and gave loud toots on the horn, they came out and waved us both by.  Hoorahs and grins all round.

Vinnie's Mum


What with all the partying of the last weekend I quite forgot my fairy lights to decorate the float with on its last homeward journey. So I phoned up Vinnie's mum, they are featured in the Triennial book  on Pae White's Barking Rocks and she bought all her Christmas lights.  Whilst I was attaching the lights she set to work taking out the add ons, what else are friends for?


Olivia is waving goodbye...goodbye.


On the last day the sun was shining gently, September sun is very different to August sun and the air was different too. We had lots of folk who knew about the float and wanted to take part.  The lower Leas park is such a delight.
