At Chris’ suggestion we meet at Chambers for a coffee which turns into a couple, which turned into a bagel for me and cake for Chris (delicious).
The man who runs Discover Folkestone, Hythe and Romney Marsh is also a face in Folkestone, in a non- East End gangster type of way. Even the Mayor stops for a chat.
Having moved from Sussex when he was two, Chris has lived in Folkestone on and off since, with the off side taking him all over the place. Working in travel and tourism since the 80’s, Chris’ first job in the industry was right here in Folkestone.
Discover Folkestone & Romney Marsh was started in 2003 with seed money from Eurotunnel which was for a three year period. Chris came on board in November 2006 and re-instated its fortunes and it has been running ever since.
