This is the inside story of how, at the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st, an English seaside town was rescued from creeping decline and set along a path towards vitality and prosperity. The remarkable transformation – or rather the beginnings of a transformation – has been led by Roger De Haan, former Chairman of Saga. His visionary but steady insistence that Folkestone has a bright future both as a community and as a centre for exceptional creativity has been backed and bolstered by considerable personal investment and, it must be said, dogged determination.
