Alarm set off by Croakie the toad

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

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.
