Alarm set off by Croakie the toad
YOU can expect to find many unusual things in Tenterden Museum but a live toad would not normally be one of them. However, that is just what curator Debbie Greaves discovered. She said: “The burglar alarm kept going off and we couldn’t work out why. “Then one day I saw this visitor hopping around.” The toad - nicknamed Croakie by Mrs Greaves - foiled attempts to catch him until a colander was brought in as a trap. Mrs Greaves said: “He was probably living in the bathroom and left to explore the museum.” He has since been set free in the garden of Ashford Borough Council leader and museum neighbour Paul Clokie.
