Graham Welling 1954-1972 My grandparents on my Dad's side, Charles and Gladys Welling owned and ran the Two Bells in Canterbury Road from 1954 until about 1972. After selling the pub they moved to a small house also in Folkestone to retire.
Peter Welling 1954-1972 My parents Charles and Gladys Welling were landlords of the Two Bells for 18 years. It was a good working class pub.They ran a good house and they were highly respected. The pub was busy, especially when the travelling fair came to town. My Mum and Dad retired in 1972 to enjoy a happy retirement in their little in Walton Manor Close. They now lie together in Hawkinge.
Suzanne Anderson To 1972 Graham is my cousin and my brothers and I used to spend many happy months each summer with our Grandparents who ran the pub. He had a thriving vegetable garden and I helped Nanny she'll the peas as well as working behind the bar (doing the washing up)Its so sad it is so rundown ..I too hope someone pucks up the gauntlet and runs with it. It was a happy place to be and extremely popular..always full.
