Last night – 09.11.22 – at Wards Hotel, Folkestone, Sir Roger De Haan (pictured) gave a talk about the regeneration of Folkestone at the AGM of Go Folkestone.
He was invited by Go Folkestonewho have long campaigned to make Folkestone a better place.
Below is a recording of Sir Roger and the interaction with over a 100+ attendees.
He openly, playfully and benevolently calls Guy Holloway – a Bonkers Architect, and hopes the Triennials will turn Folkestone “into a Mecca of art”.
Of course, Sir Roger gives his version of the reality of the regeneration of Folkestone. He does so as a developer and a philanthropist. He speaks about the Old High Street, The Seafront, Harbour Arm, Shepway Sports Trust, Education, The Council, Car Parking, and the Princess Royal. He accepts he took his eye of the ball, regarding the Princess Royal.
It’s for you to decide if Sir Roger, and the organisations and events strongly associated with him, have been a force of betterment, for a place 55,000 of us call home.
