Folkestone Flower Power: Floral Hanging Baskets along The Leas

Pat Cocks Writes “Here are the names of individuals, organisations and businesses who have generously sponsored the floral baskets for this year. In Alphabetical order.

We have two people who live further north but visit Folkestone from time to time who said how much they had missed the baskets and have sponsored. They can see what a difference flowers make to peoples well-being and enjoyment. It is an intangible thing that we perhaps don’t appreciate until they are no longer there. So, let’s look forward to giving much pleasure to our residents and all those visitors we are hoping will visit us this year, recommend Folkestone to their friends, and come again.

You all know what you have donated and every amount however small or large is equally valued.
