The Insider

your Views on Manston Airport ??

Channel Chamber has been asked by Manston Airport to help them identify local business and travel needs.
Initial research undertaken amongst Chamber members indicates a significant demand for travel to a whole range of European destinations with staff members also keen to enjoy the prospect of many popular holiday destinations. If you haven’t taken part in this online survey please do so:
It will be hugely valuable for Manston Airport to receive as many views as possible – from management and staff.

‘Folkestone’s Festival of Festivals’

FOLKESTONE Town Centre Management (FTCM) has invited local businesses, entertainment providers and community organisations to help present next year’s events programme as an all-embracing Festival of Festivals. It would include the town’s traditional summer season festivals and carnivals as well as local celebrations to mark unique national events.

Branding the events programme as a three-month something-to-please-everyone festival, claims FTCM, will enhance the marketability of Folkestone as a leisure, recreation and shopping destination and create extra sales opportunities for commercial and other enterprises which cater for and entertain holiday and day visitors
