RARE BEETLE: If you’ve seen the odd stranger peering attentively at the ground and vegetation near the southern end of the village (who hasn’t lost their car keys), then you’ve possibly spotted an entomologist in recent weeks. A rare beetle (and gardener’s friend) with the wonderful name of The Sycophant has been found locally.
