Cllr Alderman acknowledges that even if the memorial were moved, visitors would likely return, reaffirming the emotional connection to the site where Dobby’s legacy is remembered. It sheds light on the historical context, sharing that Dobby’s fictional resting place aligns with the rhythm of the tide.
