The Message Hubs

At three sites at South Street, Blackbull Road and Fleming Way in East Folkestone, Strange Cargo's community noticeboard scheme called The Message Hubs, has been unveiled.

Decorated with images of significant East Folkestone locations, the Hubs are in response to a consultation exercise as part of the Kent County Council funded Folkestone Forward initiative where communication was identified as a major obstacle to people accessing local opportunities and services. The Hub sites were chosen in collaboration with local neighbourhood groups at busy interchanges and give unrestricted access to local people to display their own posters and adverts, making it much easier to communicate local news and events, and a place where all of the interesting or significant local news, such as community events, gigs, fund raising projects, entertainment, lost cats, keep fit classes, significant birthdays, and the wealth of local services can be advertised and shared with a much wider audience.

If you are a Folkestone resident, please make use of the Hubs, and enjoy communicating easily with your neighbourhood.
