What do you love about Folkestone / why you came to Folkestone? Like many, I’m not from Folkestone, I moved here for my love of the sea, my children were born here and we feel like we’re home. The huge creative community here really fires me up and I’m proud that that unique mix of creative and grittiness sets us apart from the other cinque port towns.
